  1. . Yeah here is another idiot that went to 7K from 4K so that I could finally get my client computers to hit HTTPs sites ....... man I never got under 1.5 with my tweaked 4K's and if I did, it was a problem with the NOC. I have sat and watched a download hang at 8000kb/ps and I mean stay there ........ download a 100 meg file in 5-6 minutes ..... now with this 7K crap I will be lucky to get it done in an hour. I am sick of this crap and like some others, I bought my modem out right so I would not be locked into Hughes on a contract .....

Linux "almost squeaked into the real world" right about '99 / 2000 and probably would have if the Stockmarket / Software-Internet IPO crash had not occurred. Gates rides on the wings of pure luck, timing and greed ....... and he is trying with all his little heart to 'Hard-Chip' Windows onto motherboards ........ once that happens, we are all screwed. No more "rolling your own" after that happens and if Gates has his way or he doesn
