Computers working... [Jun. 7th, 2000|04:35 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Computers are now both setup and working. We have something like 8 or 9 computers in this housing sharing one 56k modem ... it's frickin' terrible. My parents said they would've called TCI and got cable installed before I came home, but alas they have not... so I'm stuck on this damn modem for a week.

I'm in the EXACT SAME boat, parents said the cable modem was on order but it turned out it wasn't so I'm on 56.6 for the next week. However, it's only me, so the bandwidth isn't too bad...

You guys stop your bitchin'. I've got some jank ass cable company, so I can't get a cable modem... and my phone company is stupid too, so DSL is out. Maybe if I just make some sites and host them here on the intranet in my basement, I can look around those all day and not get too bored? Nah, I'm screwed... probably be years before I can get high speed access.

Get off your ass!

Brad-

No offense but maybe if you got off your ass and got a job so you could stop milking your parents for free things you wouldn't have so many problems.

Re: Get off your ass!

I have two jobs, smart guy.... both very well paying. The only reason I'm here this summer is because my mom wanted me to.... next summer I'll be up in Seattle in our house, but we don't get it until Sept 1st.
