    This is so awesome. Only bad thing is Dishnetwork had used all my jacks so I sacraficed my viewing pleasure [in my room] for broadband, but I can go in the backyard and switch the cables...I know I can get the splitter but it was $30 and money unfortunately does not grow on trees.

    In Orlando, DC, and here in VA.. there was never any provider and now I finally have it. The first thing I did to test speed was go here and click on the "Flash Version!" It loaded awesomely... The guy said my signal was amazing too!

    Here I come [again] Counter-Strike!

    PS - A married couple came to install and the woman at the end called in on her husband's walky -talky because she fell in a parking space outside, hopefully I am not eligible to be sued, it wasn't on my property. Can she say she tripped off my curb and do damage to me?

    Over the holidays I was using dialup at my sisters house. I couldn't believe how slow it actually is and after a few minutes just gave up on checking sites. Spoiled? Yes, but not ashamed of it.

    When I went to college, CS and Starcraft were the games-du... uh... year. It was like magic and sex only clean. [​IMG]
