Dude, you have got to get DSL. With wireless, which I think you already have or used to have, both of you can have high speed everywhere in the house. Weren't you the one who convinced ME to go high speed wireless?

Hey C. Dale,

Yep. I believe I was the one who told you 'bout DSL. Here's the problem . . . I live in the boonies.

I've called Comcast and they don't have a pipe out here. Verizon/Qwest have yet to lay fiberoptic cable along this route of Mount Baker Highway. I've even looked into getting a satellite high speed connection, but that's too expensive ($600 for the hardware plus $57 a month).

So I guess my high speed internet connection will have to be at school until progress comes to Maple Falls.
