Joining the 21st Century

Today we changed our ISP and our hardware.  It isn't high-speed internet but it looks awfully good after what we have endured for so long.  We can use Skype without long pauses, garbled sound and frequent dropped calls.  I actually watched a video on YouTube without having to take 15 to 30 minutes to download it first.  Web pages load in seconds instead of minutes.  Not only that but we got a D-Link wireless so we can use our laptops anywhere in the house and only have one account.

You are foreseeing Kuchma's plans for the new wireless?

Wow it's been a long time since I had to endure that.

Later on line the dog scheduled the cat for a neutering.

Next thing you know they'll have sliced black bread.

Is your new internet by phone line, cable, wireless, satellite?

The "net" result seems to be pretty good. But wait 'til Volk and Bobick sell YOU on E-bay.

Yay! Maybe we can even video chat now?

DC, we are wireless but from satellite or transmitter, I don't really understand. We have no phone line but someday I hope we will. Though I don't want a house phone per se.
