Today we finally joined the 21st century and got wireless high-speed internet. It's so fast...it's scary. We no longer have to tie up the phone line for hours downloading windows updates or patches. Thank the gods.
Of coarse the kid now wants a subscription to Xbox live and various other software for the PC that simply wasn't possible to run on our 24.4 kb per second dial up. We went with the wireless router, so that we can access it anywhere in the house or even the tent trailer in the back yard...if that's what floats your boat.
I brought a lap top home and plan to work from home tomorrow. This ability may be old hat to some of you but personally, I find this option too cool for words. We will see how effective this turns out to be...I have the phone number for tech support handy.
Update to follow tomorrow...let's hope it isn't a rant.
