And I have to confess I'm amazed at all these DSL horror stories. I guess I was just fortunate or something. I was an early adopter when PacBell introduced it, and consequently I'm paying the same rate I ever paid for my static IP address, where later adopters have either to have a dynamic IP address or pay $50 more than I'm paying for the privilege of staticity.

I've never had really serious problems with it -- though, truth be told, another person in my same house signed up and got the dynamic DSL and had nothing but problems. Time to set up a household firewall, and just have all the house machines go thru my DSL, I guess.

PBI as an ISP, now, that's another fsckin story entirely. But no complaints at all about the DSL service.

There ya go, vroom, your next poll should try to discover how many folks have their entire house ethernetted ... ;)
