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.

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!

    Beat my old time by a few seconds, but the old time was with no incline, the new time is at 1% 3 miles @ 1% incline - 20 minutes 54 seconds.
