  1. I feel your pain and agree with you 100%. I thought the same thing for the few years I was on it. Customers are paying an arm and a leg and should get what they're paying for with the Hughesnet service.
  2. Unfortunately that's typical of HughesNet for just about every customer. You'll just have to live with it unless there are any other alternatives for you.
  3. haha, one month free is no way near enough to get anyone to stay with HughesNet
  4. I thought HughesNet was great as long as you have a clear view of the southern sky?
  5. Congrats! you'll be so happy when you get it! HughesNet sucks!
  6. Yeah, before we switched it got extremely slow during peak hours... take a test early in the morning.
  7. Third Eye is a great song and Bill Hicks was a great comedian. The live version on the Salival cd is almost better. However, 10,000 Days is the best? It's different. I like Lateralus a lot more, but each album is different so it's all about taste. Sorry for the off topic discussion... lol
  8. The first part of the video really hurts it. So many people have to watch it and judge that it's total bullshit just based on the first part, however, parts II and III are much better. Part III is amazing. Especially the Bill Hicks quote at the end.
  9. It's amazing you haven't gotten more replies about this... you need to. this needs to be seen.
  10. Can't do that on my router. Linksys WRT54G Ver. 2.
  11. I'm sure we're pretty far out. We're about 10 miles from town. I have tried Cablenut in the past and have it set on my wireless laptop which gets around the same speeds. When school starts back up I'll do some 6 AM speed tests.
  12. Still hovering around 2.2 on my wired Windows computer with the setting
  13. Can you configure it for Mac? And I just tried to do that for my Windows laptop, but it's not possible for wireless connections.
  14. Hmmm... I can't seem to find that on my WRT54G router. Help?
  15. I'm on a 3/512 package with SBC Global Yahoo DSL :::..

  16. yeah, i've been busy with a lot of school work. damn, 10 / 768, that sure is far from the old satellite speeds you used to get. i hope HughesNet goes out of business.
  17. Got DSL installed today got the 3 / 512 package. so happy I'm done with Hughes. finally.
  18. Safari... I like iTunes. That's beside the point, I'm not buying a Mac because of the Apple software bundled with it. The easiest way to explain it would be: I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Sue me. It wasn't really a budget per say. Much more like a goal. I'll choose a different word next time. And I italicized word because that's just what it was. but that's a different argument.
  19. To help your argument, why not list the games that don't work? Good idea hmm? Safari isn't my cup of tea, but I like iTunes. I'll be using Adium instead of iChat, most likely.
  20. That was my original budget. But since it's the last computer my parents will ever buy for me, I went ahead and made sure I could squeeze out as much as I could. Again, I don't play games so what advantage does Windows being able to play more games? Why do I give a fuck about that? And I do plenty of editing in Photoshop. I have a Dell. It was $1000. Hard drive died after half a year. Screen broke. Now the hinges have fallen apart and the backlight has shut off. I'm not buying another Dell, period. My brother's $1700 Dell has done the same thing (hinges). And Vista..... sucks. so why would I stick with XP when I want to upgrade?
  21. I see. I'll be using it mostly at home. I've read that while glare is a problem, glossy is better when outdoors. Also, apparently glossy causes more strain on the eyes? But whenever my eyes get strained, I realize I've wasted too much time on the computer.
  22. I'm scared that you never replied to my answer. Which do you prefer, matte or glossy?
  23. Just ordered a Macbook Pro last night... I hope I made the right choice with the $2000 price tag. Some Christmas present, huh?
