Thinking the Unthinkable...

Well, before I knew it the little red suited fella on my left shoulder had pointed and clicked his way to signing me up (he did, at least, have the good grace to do it all in Fi's name so that my name could never be linked to AOL).

Fi, being impatient, has rung AOL today and they told her our line has been provisioned although our kit has yet to arrive. So using a Dynamode A360 ADSL modem I had floating around gathering dust I procured some modem settings from the internet (Bob's internet) and got started.

The upshot is, here I am sitting in MY house, at MY dining table using MY internet connection!

I have not had to infect my laptop with the AOL virus.

I do not have to use some kind of proprietry browser.

All in all, I have a cheap connection to the internet and have sidestepped most of the downsides. It just remains to be seen what the quality of the connection is like, time will tell, I will post back in the near future.... From Bob's if necessary!! LOL!!!
