    The breaking point for "cutting the cable" and getting DSL and a satellite dish, was dealing with computers in other States trying to walk me through troubleshooting my internet connection when I had already determined the problem to be the cable company! (repost)
    Couldn't call the local cable company customer service, 4 miles away max, I went in person to cancel the frigging service!

    Anyway, I had this list on another laptop, and have just now managed to find it again. I'll E-mail it to my hotmail account for future reference.

    Here y'all go...................use with pleasure! :laugh: Here is the link!

    Excellent! Although, without visiting the link, this post is among the most confusing I've ever read...

    Yeah, I agree!
    When I copied and pasted it, it changed the format. Could have fixed it, but I worked all day ( 8 hours ) on a safety video for work, and I'm about computer wasted!
    That's the main reason I posted the link! :wink1:
