Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it, your time has come. This time you will stand alone and fight for yourselves. Now you will pay for your freedom in the currency of honest toil and human blood."

We have got the spring wireless internet. Only thing we could get where we lived besides dial up. We tried everything and trees are too tall for the air canopy or other similar wireless providers. This sucks for 65 a month

Fuck Charter. Fuck FIOS (because I can't get it)

I only get two choices in Lake Dallas, the shit from Charter or the really stinky shit from Centurytel. Both suck monkey ballz. My next house will have FIOS or Uverse or I'm simply not going to buy it.

I will give Charter a little bit of its due. My connection has only dropped a couple of times in the last year. Before that it dropped at least once a week.

You probably have the wrong connection selected. Your ISP shows to be Sprint. Do you have an air card or something with Sprint you use for wireless? You weren't on a TWC/VZ IP block

You guys crack me up criticizing your 5 Mbps broadband Internet connection.

I remember running a 33.3K modem and getting exciting when the new 56K modems came out.

My first broadband connection was 128K ISDN, then I got a 784K/128K ADSL, which felt like it was blazing fast. Now we are averaging speeds far beyond 5 Mbps and people think that sucks.

Hilarious....., but very sad for me because I just realized how old I am.

That's interesting. You were at home on your VZ connection, but it shows up as Sprint?

Do you use Sprint to get online when you travel?

FWIW, I just ran it again from the office. Still showing Sprint to be my ISP.


WTF? I don't have an air card at all. I have a Dell laptop with the built in wireless card. I've never used Sprint service, for anything either.

Nope. My cell service is with AT&T. I don't use an air card at all, currently. I was actually going to get one today, but it will stay with my cell service.
