Great News! The phone technician that had previously called and told me I could not get high speed internet called today and said if I was going to be home that he would come out and hook up my DSL. Took him about 15 minutes and now I have high speed. Granted, it is extended high speed and not as fast as some might have, but it sure beats dial up. I won't have to have two phone lines any more and my phone bill will go down to boot!
Oh, happy day!!!
