#1 No worries Fred! I dropped Comcast for crappy service and increasing rates.

#2 I liked Verizon DSL when I had it. Nice and reliable. Only problem was that if there was an issue, you couldn't get ahold of them. That was when I had my temper tantrum and dropped them.

You can't get ahold of the phone company by telephone. Go figure.

#3 No worries, the rest of the mods and the regulars can cover.

How about an EVDO card for your laptop?

#4 Fred, just a note:
There's stuff going on in Peshawar. The Khyber Pass is supposed to be on the NATO resupply route. The Taliban and their militants have been swarming into the area. Gunship helicopters are in the area and are said to be on highest alert standby. Just thought you'd like to know. Good luck with the tech stuff!

#6 Pakistan is quickly falling apart. Cripes, the savages burned the country's only ski resort today! This makes them irredeemable in my opinion. Call OP! Release the B-52's!

#7 Fred,

Not a big deal, but on a tech note, I'm not able to submit articles to Rantburg using Firefox, only MSN. Can you look into it when you have time?

#8 Southwestern Bell internet UNservice had the classic contact info, if your connection wasn't working you were told on the telephone menu to e-mail them! No Human contact was allowed.

#9 Mizzou,

I just tried it. Problem isn't that its working, but that the page doesn't realize it's done. I'll try and fix it over the weekend, assuming I have a connection.

#10 MM - In FF: Once the article is sent, hit stop, backpage twice and reload and you'll see your article on the page where you posted. Kinda lame, but it's the best I've stolen from Alaska Paul got

#14 To be fair, my time spent with Qwest DSL tech support was extraordinary. After two days of chasing around a problem with local techs, the phone call of four hours resulted in a functioning intertube.

#16 Ferd - sorry you're having trouble. You're a saint to do what you do.

Please NEVER apologize to us - everything you do is a gift beyond measure.

Hope Concast quits *ffing with you soon.
