Default Without The Internet No More!

As some of you may have noticed, I have not been around very much lately. The reason for this is simple: I moved back to university, and into a new flat, and it took a very long time to get the internet up and running - first of all due to one company having a marker on our line, so our ISP of choice
couldn't give us the internet, then we had to wait for it to be active... and then the new router we bought so we could have wireless couldn't seem to access the internet for some reason. But somehow it does now!

So I have finally got the internet at home now!

I've just moved myself, and it doesn't seem worth the trouble of getting it all connected at a place that I'm not going to be at for any longer than 3 months - not when I have to change over from cable to ADSL, and it'll take them two weeks to set it up...oh and I have to get a landline connected to the apartment, and pay for that as well. I hate having to pay for something I'm not going to use otherwise.
Hope it all works out well for you C'ris!

I couldn;t do a week without!

Actually, last time I wanted to change ISP's the deal fell through when they had to admit that I would have to do without for 3 weeks before everything was running again. So... sorry, but thanks. I switched my choice from ADSL to cable, the only way they could hook me up without any day without the net

Hmm, I remember schlepping in to Kendall's office before I worked there too, to use the net after we'd just moved to Maryland and were waiting a few weeks for hookup.
