  1. DUDE !!! Get a hair cut ! :haha: Not Bad.
  2. I think a lot of people would like to know the answer to that one. I've heard and read a ton of speculation on the question, but never heard an answer that made any sense. Glad I don't have to deal with that Horse Stuff on DSL. Still, I'd like to know if ever I'm forced to switch.
  3. Me TOO ! It's simple, lite, and stable. :D
  4. The 3360 is over provisioning at the Verizon CO/RT to help offset some of the inherit losses and overhead. If they provisioned at 3000, you would probably yield ~2.5 MB instead. Be happy, your looking good with that excellent score. Sadly no one gets the full 3MB. HTH
  5. 1280x1024 19 " CRT here. I have to pump up the text size on FF because I'm old and blind !
  6. Your looking good ! Don't let the "83.4 % of your hosts average (verizon.net) " throw you, it's the screwed up data base here. The 3360 is your provisioning. It's over provisioned to compensate for some overhead losses. Your ready to Rock and Roll !
  7. YaY !!! It freaks new folks out when they see that and think they have a problem. I've ask about this in the past and the response was... well luke warm. Some of the other ISP categories may/do have the same problem ? Thanks for looking into it.
  8. Pretty easy. Some info...http://dessent.net/btfaq/ An easy starter BT client, (No Java) http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/ I still use it today. Like all life on the NET, Safe Hex is key. Know your sources, scan all you downloads before using, opening them. Have fun.
  9. Single layer DVD, 4.7 GB is as good as it gets. Get a dual layer burner for more. Prepare for hefty prices for the media. I have had very good luck with Ritek DVD +and -. from...http://www.supermediastore.com/ritek-dvd-plus-r-section.html They have good every day prices and a lot of sales they will email you. Just use a spam acct. although I've never had a problem with spam from them.

    what #

    Have you tried this page... http://www22.verizon.com/FiosForHome/channels/Fios/HighSpeedInternetForHome.asp Under the PH # part there's a "Qualify by address" link. Hope it works for you.
  11. Lots of folks seem to like it. Your another endorsement for it. Anything is safer on the Web these days than that Damn IE. I'm cheap, so I switched to FF for free.
  12. Fingers crossed and hoping for the best. If NASA looses another orbiter I'm afraid it would severely curtail if not end the US space program. With only 5 years and another 20 missions left in this design before a replacement is in place. Another disaster would immediately bring calls to pull funding out from under a new vehicle. God speed to all aboard and NASA.
  13. An FYI if your referring to VERIZON DSL it's ~ 50/50, Old ex-BA is PPPoE, Old ex-GTE is DHCP, Caveat SOME of the Newest DSL enabled ex-GTE areas are Rumored to be PPPoE. Example, I'm old school ex-GTE with DSL I have DHCP. HTH
  14. http://www.squarefree.com/pornzilla/ What are they for you ask !?? Why what else... Pron ! A couple actually have legitimate uses too ! :haha: Post # 100 !
