SkeeterUK - interesting comment about "why is dial-up still sold to the public." I live 30 miles west of Washington D.C. in one of the richest Countys in the US (except for me) on a dirt road with no cable and no broadband internet available by wire. I get my "cable" by satellite (DirecTV) and my broadband from a line-of-sight tower. So in this huge country of ours, sometimes dial-up is the only available way. I must say, though, I've had my broadband for a year or less and, my gosh, I love it. Some day (sooner than we think) it will be universal and "there" just like the phone line. (When we can hook up our computer to our cellphone then wireless broadband will be universal.)
BeaSong - how is your satellite internet working? I considered Huges Net (now Skynet?) but my son pointed me to a forum of people who could only talk about how much they hated it.
