After returning from a week away, I discovered that my phone line was fried. After getting that fixed, I discovered that my modem was fried.
It was enough. Fed up with waiting for Bell Sympatico to bring DSL to my phone line, I called Rogers and signed up for a cable modem and high-speed service. The installer came this morning, hokked up the cable and activated the modem. I plugged it in to the computer and loaded the software and signed on. I reconfigured my email forwarding through my personal domain, so people don’t even have to change the address they send to!
3 megabits per second for CAD 44.95 per month! Gonna tire out the hamsters! w00t!
Just one question–does Rogers have a Usenet news server?
