One more reason to distrust horses...

Never my favorite animal, the horse reveals it hideous nature once again. Watch the chicken. The poor innocent chicken...

John, you really do hate people with dial-up don't you?

rhoads - I hope you are kidding, but if you aren't, that's not what I'm going for. I'm sorry if it seems I'm emphasizing video too much. That is where communication is going, I believe.

In fact, we're working at FJ Media to try to find some way to make broadband a more affordable option. I think if we can entice sponsorships or something and get the cost down to around $40/mo. we could help a lot of you find out what the Internet is all about. (Be sure the deduct the cost of a second phone line you won't need - that's how I justified it to begin with.)

It's the best investment I've ever made.

I was definitely kidding John. I'd love to have broadband. I've looked into some, including Directway (which I'm guessing you use), Omnicity, and Wild Blue. I just can't get myself to pay what Directway wants (too much of a tightwad) and the reviews for the other two are terrible. So I'm going to wait a while longer and hopefully something reliable and not so pricey will come along but I'm not holding my breath. On another note, I didn't know we lived so close to each other until you mentioned some time back that you could see part of the Newport Ammunition Plant compound from your farm.

I hooked up to Wild Blue about 9 months ago and have been impressed with it so far. I did have the transmitter on the dish go out but the local distributor (our Rural Electric Coop) was out the next day to replace it.

I live too far away from town to get the DSL service offered by the phone company. So satellite was the only way we could get higher speed service. Once I had a faster connection I wondered how I ever lived with dialup.
