  1. Ok, so many posts to look through so I guess i'm taking the lazy way out here (sorry)...I want out of this crap service from Xplornet satellite....anyone got an easy way out of a two year contract, short of hiring a lawyer! Their service bites...resorting to dial up alot lately, and i'm fed up.
  2. [quote author=ninjageek . Had to go buy a 2.00 big mac to get rid of the taste in my mouth.

  4. Thanks for the replies everyone, and thanks Starship, I got a program from your link that works for dloading.
  5. I was transfering some files from my large hard drive to my smaller one getting ready to formatt. While I was transfering a 300mb folder, half way throught I ahd an error saying one of the files folders couldn't be tranfered for some reason (I forget the reason), I had problems getting the task to respond after that, and make a long story short, I had to reboot my computer. Upon start up again, I no longer have a D drive showing anywhere (thats my small hard drive). I can't seem to find it either, I click to send something to it (had a shortcut to the small HD in my send to on right click option) and it says the HD cannot be found or has been removed. Any ideas what couldve happened or how to get it back.or find it?
  6. Is there a way to download videos off you tube on your computer? I have some favorites I would really like to get
  7. New Brunswick in Canada. Tdc broadband was going to set up in my community in Nova Scotia but I think they caught wind that nobody is going to be willing to pay $730 for hook up up front and $49.99/month. They were suppose to be up and running about a month ago, but they are not and they answer no emails regarding if they are going to continue with their plans. Nova Scotia gov't is committed to everyone having high speed access by 2009, and they are co-funding pilot projects and seeking out private companies to set up high speed services in rural areas.One county is presently being done and the gov't will monitor their service and prices to see if they will get them to go into other areas later this year.
  8. I have no idea if this will help you out as I know nothing about wireless, but a few weeks ago a new company was saying they were going to expand into my area with wireless internet (which they have not), and I was emailing the rep asking if gaming would be good or not. In one of his replies to me he said it should work ok but there is some latency in their system and he used an example that Linksy routers seem to shut down with some customers. I guess the point im trying to make or ask, maybe is it the router on that type of connection casuing the problem?
  9. You can appluad me for trying then. I was going topick porn but only could pick 2, so I evaluated my choices of surfing, email and porn and I surf alot, and email porn to a buddy, so I guess I can kill 3 choices in two votes! lmao
  10. yup, 3 years is too long. that would bite if a better type of internet came into your area for alot less money a few months after you signed that contract! , it happens, thats how I got this satellite internet for nothing.
  11. I asked that question to the lady on the phone, she said she can't really tell me! I don't know if it was a case that she didn't actually know(which the way she sounded led me to believe that), or she is not at liberty to tell a customer.
  12. At the time, I felt it was the worse part of my lfe as a teenager basically due to not wanting the pressures of doing stuff I thought wasting my time and boring, not knowing what I wanted to do in life, and just wanting to hang out. Now that im out of school for 20 years, in a job that I took just to get out of school and I will add that I find boring and no challenge, I look back on my school years and "now" realize they were a good time in my life, I just didn't realize it. Although I do look back at the good times of hanging out with friends and I am grateful for that part of it. To all you teenagers in here, really sit down and try to look ahead by 10 years and look at the types of work around you, make a thought out choice for a profession, don't settle like alot of us do! Make a career choice that you will find interesting, hopefully enjoyable and hopefully make good money doing it.
  13. Yes, they will slow you down, that's a fact! They did it to me and the customer assistant told me when they had me FAP'd and for how long . 25% slow down, if your good for an hour, they'll boost you back up, if not they cut you another 25% and so on until your at a crawl.
  14. Interesting article http://www.talkbroadband.com/articles/62/1/Which-Broadband-Speed-for-Gaming%3F
