So, many of you know that I've been without Internet (along with other services) at home for about 7 months. After a lot of broken promises, I'm very happy to announce that as of Tuesday, I have Internet access! We still won't have tv for a while, but Internet is the biggie.Not only did we just get it, but we were the first in the whole development to get it because my brother and I have befriended the IT guys and basically let them know that we too are capable geeks. It's currently a little over 1Mb download speed, and I went by their office last night (around 9 pm), and not only were they there, but they set me up with a bunch of static IPs, and gave me the phone number of my choosing (out of a range of about 500 numbers). So I have a lot of other work to do, getting my site switched over and everything. Of course, this also means I haven't been getting much sleep lately. Anyway, this is certainly cause to celebrate in my mind.

What's this? This entry isn't the least bit political!
Yeah, I was expecting a debate about abortion or something. What gives? Seriously, congrats on having internet access finally! No TV? How do you live? Can't you get satelitte? When I first moved into my house (it was brand new, too) it wasn't connected to cable yet, either. But the satellite people did that for free for me if I agreed to stay with them for a year. I have a free installation coupon with them if you want it... (I think. I may have to look for it, but let me know if you want it. I'm pretty sure I still have it. Somewhere.)
Yea! Welcome to the super hi-fi wired home of the future! :)
I'm quite happy when I don't have TV service. I don't have much use for it, though I had it hooked up last week along with my cable internet, since it was just $3 extra after the discount for doing it and I do watch it occasionally.Congrats on finally getting internet and phone service, Cameron! Now you can stay up late into the night debating with random liberals. ;)
