DSL woes

by on Dec.13, 2002, under General News

Just a couple of days after I was telling someone how create my DSL line was, DirecTV announced they are shutting down DSL service. I got the service when it was Telocity – $49/month for static IP, 640 down/90 up (which they bumped to 800/160 a while back), no restrictions, no commitment, self-install. And its worked great except for a minor DNS glitch they had (which was solved by running my own…) Now I have to figure out what I’m going to do. Sci-Fi Storm is not tied to that line, but the stores are, so I will be scrambling to deal with it. I may have to go with a Dynamic IP from Verizon, since Covad doesn’t have a DSLAM here…stay tuned.

The familiar theme of alien invasion is treated in author Michael Kirshteyn?s THE NEUTRINO EFFECT with refreshing optimism and a sure-handed style.

Read Moe for the rest…
