  1. Hey Bozman , I'm sure at some point people locally will see your post and reply.

    Roam around the forum and you might find others in the same situation as yours :)


    I live three miles from the main dsl base that is in our town of Dora,mo . Those in Dora vicinity (within one mile ) get speeds to 2 Mbps but I only got a max 93 KB/s . (Reason I said got is that was before I tweaked /optimized my network . I now get 1.25 Mbps) . Anyway , I talked to centurylink about the lower speeds and that they said they throttled all connections outside of the immediate area . Say Huh ????....and had no plans to increase it . I offered to pay more or get another plan but was told I had the highest plan for my location . I asked a centurylink worker if this was so and if I could get higher speeds . He said yes and that you could get higher speed if the company would allow it but they will not . I have no other options because that Centurylink is the only provider here .

  2.   Yeah, (union) it was one of those things I didn't see in the fine print when I signed the dotted line  :wink: but she is a good un  :smitten:......... I fried a couple hard drives or should say I had to reformat and start over due to tweaking and wouldn't you know I did not back up my files :oops: But I learned from that mistake. I am no tech expert by no means but have learned a lot by online help, books and ...trial/error ,(see fried hard drives) hate to admit the last part but i found out what NOT to do by doing so, ha!  And I hate Norton, once that booger is on your system it takes deep cleaning to rid the #$%&@#$%@#$% thing. It is a virus in it self. Some what like AOL.

  3. And loving it no doubt.  :smiley: So hows the puter running by the way? Running strong? Just checking.

      What do mean loving it? huh?  that is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY understated  :grin2:    Every second!  CP is doing great but am going to do some more tweaks in the near future but got to be careful because I sure do not want it to crash and burn.  Well gotta go. The wife :knuppel2: is sitting behind me saying it is her turn. Will catch up later  Tim

    You do have some beautiful mountainous tree lines though. Pretty countryside. Especially in the fall.  :grin2:

      What I meant by ice country was ice storms in general, had three in the last four years.  Only had some sleet mixed with rain in the am yesterday. And yes the fall colors are great here, except this year it got to cold to quick and the leaves fell off before full color :angry:

  5. Yeah, right across the border.  :wink: Actually about 15 miles north of KC in the sticks a bit. You?

    By the way ever since a kid I enjoyed visits in the ozarks. Grandad had a place on the lake in a beautiful cove. His place was lake front with a dock, and two doors from the general store. Wish I had his place.

      Speaking of lakes,  I am near the Norfork lake and between the Bryant Creek and the White River, in a little community called Dora,  The white is  really great to Canoe or Tube and Trout fish (Blue Ribbon) with the Bryant being the same but fishing is for Small mouth Bass of which it is loaded.  The Mark Twain NF branch is runs along the river.   I tell the folks back where I used to lived (Tampa Fl) that my location is 40th and plum, Which is an old Florida cracker term to mean : forty miles from nowhere and plum in da woods :grin:

  6. wow tommie i knew you were close to where i am, but not THAT close. thats pretty cool. didnt know we were that close.  :wink:

    and welcome aboard tim :grin2:

      Thanks,  Sorry about the late reply, have been busy dialing in Wildblue to pc ect [nerdly]  I am located in South/central Mo  about  23miles west of West Plains or 60miles east/sth/east of Springfield.  ICE COUNTRY :icon_pale:

  7.   Hey tg, I was an end of the Centurytel line of sevice / DSL  with top speed of 260kpbs, and was told that that was all that they could do until they put in more wire/cable but with no immediate plans to do so in the near future. So I had a choice between Hughes or Wild blue of whom the latter I had chosen.  And oh by the way I located the large downloads  :idiot2:
