  1. Yes. It is tethered to my Pc. Unfortunately its that or use dial - up. Out here in the country where I live that is all that is available. I mean, my speeds are between 250 & 300 down and 50 or so up, so it's better than dial up. I have thought of getting either hughesnet or wild blue satellite. I might check into it one day. Up front costs are so high though.
  2. Kewl. Thanks for the info. I don't know if my comp is up for it but willing to give it a shot. It is working in the background. Haven't seen any difference in my setup (speed,memory usage, etc) so I think it is ok. Glad to contribute to a worthy cause.
  3. When trying to look up the teams stats, does it always come up with this?
  4. Welcome aboard Silver Fox2. I myself am pretty new here. This forum can always use use info and help from its members. Hope you enjoy your stay, and again, welcome.
  5. This may help others who have the same setup. ****I guess I should put a disclaimer on this. This setup should only be completed by someone with at least moderate computer skills. I do not guarantee this will work for your computer. It helped mine greatly, and as such I figured I would pass along the information to someone having trouble with their Bluetooth device.**** Although I doubt that anyone has near the same setup as I do. I have posted it many times, but in case you don't know, I have an Alltel hue cellular phone that is used as a modem. I pay $25 a month for unlimited d
  6. You all have excellent ping times. Wish I were so lucky. My internet connection sux!!
  7. Yes, that is an awesome wallpaper. I keep changing mine around. Is there a program out there that can automatically change your wallpaper, say, every couple of days? I have attached a wallpaper that I won, yes won, lmao, on the Disney Movie Club. My Daughter is a big fan of Disney movies, so I had to join. Plus you get to win cool stuff like this wall paper. lol. Check that..sorry. You know, as you get older your memory fades more and more. This was one I won on ebay. They have a promotion going on for a sweepstakes for 4 to stay at walt disney world all expenses paid. I did win a wal
  8. It's kind of boring, but I will post it anyway. When I was growing up a young lad in beautiful old south cakalaki, I dreamed so much of leaving and never coming back. The hometown I am from only has one stop light, well, when it works. There is only one doctor in town, and you can carry Uncle Fred there to get his yearly flu shot, or you can also carry Betsy, your mare from the barn there. Well, not really that bad, the doctor was a veterinarian before he went to medical school though. So I promised myself when I left home, I would never come back. I was meant for life in the big cit
  9. I figured I would scare everybody off and post my mug. WARNING - VIEW ONLY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! Lmao. <a href="http://www.photolava.com/view/ia5d.html"><img src="http://img108.mytextgraphics.com/photolava/2008/08/02/me2-4bdyx3w72.jpeg" alt="Free Image Hosting - Photolava.com" /></a><br /><br />
  10. Dang, but that would take all of the fun out of nuns.com. Oh, wait, I didn't say that out loud did I. lol. Oh, but wait, I just looked it up and there is REALLY a www.nuns.com. Lmao!!!! Sorry, my bad. I better go say 200 hail mary's. But anyway, yea, I have my browser set up to cut down the images. It just amazes me how much of a difference there is in bluetooth and USB cable. I mean, the bluetooth is wireless so it should run faster, right? Not necessarily the case I guess.I am tweaking as we speak. I don't see that much of a difference in page loads while surfing the web. The major
  11. Ok, am I doing something wrong here? Or does the inventor of the Bluetooth Dongle need shot? I mean, just the item by its funny name ----Dongle. Dongle? Come on who came up with that name? lmao. Anyway, to the point at hand. I don't know if you may remember my setup for internet, so if not I will go into brief detail. I am running Windows XP on a computer almost as old as me (Pure conjecture, I don't think they even thought of computers when I was born. Lol, nah, I am not that old). It's a Dell Optiplex GX110 with a Pentium III /933Mhz/512 Mb ram/160 Gb hdd. I know, a dinosaur. It's my per
  12. I kind of have to side with you Sequoia, on this one. The US keeps going into wars with the likeness of the "Big Brother", stepping in to resolve conflict between its spatting siblings. Unfortunately many times the siblings don't even want us to intervene, but we do it anyway. And you have heard it said, "to the victor goes the spoils". Where is the spoils? Maybe enough to pump W's pockets full of oil, maybe not. But if we are suppose to get the spoils, we are having a hel*uva time with it, seeing as how our deficit is $482-billion!! We step in to "help" out, but see no return of favor wh
  13. Wow.You guys are still going at it? I have been away for a day and come back and its still going. lol. All I can say is Mudmanc4---Awesome thread. Wonder if you thought it would go this far. lol. But I guess when you talk religion, it is a never ending conversation. That video was REALLY!!!! unnerving. There are many things going on in this country that we do not know about(and probably really don't want to know truth be told), and all of the agencies we don't know about(and probably don't want to know about), being funded by all of the controversial private funders (that we probably don'
  14. I have an alltel hue tethered to my computer and use it as a modem with EVDO. Unfortunately, my phone signal is not all that great, getting 48% on a good day. Alltel states speeds up to 1.5 Mbps down, I get roughly 1/3 of that. I can't complain though, after all I am running 6-10 times faster than regular 56k dial up. Plus, and I cant wait , I am getting my Wi-Ex Zboost cell phone signal extender in a week. Yayyyy. Thank you Uncle Sam for the stimulus check. lol. I think I will see a great increase in speeds.
  15. By the way, just a quick addendum. I don't think there is any reason to question Senator Mccain's patriotism, he proved it by blood, sweat, and tears. And ghostmaster, please don't think that I am discondoning your posts in any way. I looked back at a couple of my posts and it seems that way. I am just stating an opinion. Thank God we are in America where you can state your opinion. Anyway, this is the last post and all I have to say on the subject. McCain graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1958 and became a naval aviator, flying ground-attack aircraft from a
  16. Ok, all the flag on the plane issue aside. My question is this. What military experience does Obama have? 0 he never served his country in the military. And actually, what experience overall does he have. Surely you don't think that 2 years in the US Senate and 7 years in the Illinois senate makes a presidential candidate.I mean, don't get me wrong. He also taught constitutional law for 10 years and was a civil rights attorney. I just don't think he is ready for prime time. But that is just my opinion and I think I gotten way off topic, sorry Mudmanc4.
  17. What? OMG Coknuk. I wonder if his advisors made that decision, or if Obama himself decided to remove the flag. If not, Obama needs to get new advisors. Here is some of his staff, I think I will do some reading on who will actually be running the country if Obama is elected. http://www.superobama.com/obama-staff.php
  18. Mudmanc4, I think you opened up a can of worms, lol.
  19. Imagine how the US is going to be in the next 20 years. I feel bad that I brought a child into this mess. I will not go into religion, but this series is an interesting read, if you have not read the left behind series, please do.There are 12 books in the series, and they are very informative. http://www.leftbehind.com/channelbooks.asp?channelID=95 Yahaim wrote: Obama is the Anti-Christ. This is the evidence: 1.- He will come as a man of Peace (Obama promises peace in Iraq, defeat for the US) 2.- He will come mounted on a white Female horse(Obama mother is white
  20. Very funny stuff. Good post. Thanx. If he can't figure out how to use a shovel, how do you think he can run a country? EDITED: to remove dead link
  21. The poll is up gang. Sorry about that, I am new to forums. I guess I should have read the rules a little more closely. The instructions for starting a poll were a little vague, so I did a google and found out how to start a poll in "The embroidery forum." Wow, yes there is such a forum. Anyway, thanks for your patience.
  22. Well it's official, as you all may well know. Alltel will be merging with Verizon. I don't know the exact date. It is a real bummer, me being an Alltel subscriber. Currently I have my Samsung SCH-R500 tethered to my pc. I use my cell phone as a modem and only pay $25 a month for unlimited data usage. Verizon is coming in and I am sure that will change. Verizons data plans are limited. I think the highest you can use per month is 5GB for $59.99/month. I go through 5GB in a week. Anyway, I am starting this thread to see what thoughts everyone has on the merge. Please post. Thanks. htt
  23. Hi mudmanc4, and thanks; I am currently using cablenut. I have tried multiple settings but to no avail. Each time I change the settings, I do restart, but I guess I just cant find the right setup. A quick rundown of my setup - - I am connected to Alltel Axcess MobileLink via a tethered cell phone to my pc. The cell phone is a Samsung SCH-R500 (Alltel Hue).I can't complain much, as I do see speeds around 400-500 kbps, lots better than dial up 56k. However, Alltel advertises that they have speeds up to 1.5 Mbps, so I am trying to achieve that, to not much avail. Anyway, down to the details.
  24. I am tethered to my PC with my Samsung sch-r500 (Alltel Hue). I have unlimited WLS internet phones as modem for $25 per month."Unlimited data minutes for connecting to the Internet and e-mail with no worry of exceeding your voice package plan. Use your handset to connect your laptop! Not available on Blackberry, Smart Phones, or Data Cards. An Alltel data kit is required." Out here in the Country we only have dial up and this was the best solution for my budget and area. Unfortunately my phone only gets a 41% signal so I can't come anywhere close the 1.5 - 2.1 Mbps speeds advertised. I have b
