tonight and possibly tomorrow. I just talked to Sprint and did a whole bunch o' changes to my phone bill.....dumped the one-way metro, added high speed internet; since I'm not sure exactly *when* the one-way metro will disappear (she said "within 24 hours"), I won't risk using my dial-up (which is LONG DISTANCE from my home phone. Which is why I had one-way metro in the first place.)
I still have access up here at the office, and the new modem is supposed to show up *here* tomorrow. We'll see.
The upshot of all this is a $40/month savings on the phone bill (even with *adding* the high-speed...strange, no?) PLUS a $15/month savings on my (antiquated) AOL. (Yes, I have AOL. Get over it - I've had it for-freaking-ever, and am too lazy to go around changing all my contact info.*g*)
Happy? Oh, yes - I'll finally be able to do website updates from the comfort of my home instead of having to dump everything onto a CD, hauling it to the office, dumping it to this PC, then uploading from here. Lots of work for simple changes, no?
My webpro brother said he'll try to get one of the shopping carts up and running for me, so that's even better. AND my SIL is doing better, so that's good.
