Quick entry

I am in the new house where there is no DSL and no cable available for high-speed internet access. I had to find a modem, I wasn't really sure I could remember what one looked like.

Oddly enough this seems pretty zippy. I did a speed test and found I had 46.6Kbits/sec. The line quality at the barge was always a little iffy, I should have done a test there before I left. It was obviously faster than this, but I wonder how much.

I can get IDSL 144Kbits/sec up and down for about $100/month from speakeasy, that might not be too bad, if I figure in that I will need to get another line for this and dialup is 19.95/month. I will have to look into that.

The last problem, is my ISP gave me a long distance (local long distance) phone number. I will have to get a different number from them tomorrow. $0.08 a minute (it would be cheaper to call out of state) is not really worth it.

Perhaps it will keep me brief.

The new place is very quiet.


Congrats again on the new place! Have you officially moved in yet?
