Whooooo Hoooooooo!!!! I Got High Speed!

Oh yeah, baby... yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhh!

It's about friggin time. I've been "borrowing" internet from my neighbor until she moved. I've had multiple phone problems, so I just got rid of my land line. Going wireless means I'll be Skype-in and Skype-out soon too. And after I take my test this weekend, I'll be taking my Tivo wireless too, so I can download my tivo onto my computer.

Wow... it's so friggin fast! It's faster than the government building where I work. Yay! Whooo hoooo! I'm so flippin' happy!

That doesn't really scare me. I swear someone already beat you to it and is following me around Slashdot and deliberately moderating my comments down (for those who don't read slashdot, comments don't appear unless their rating meets the minimum set by the person reading). Offtopic moderations are the ones that get me the most.

Or are you the one doing it?

Koffee,

I was just reading one of your posts when a lady came by and asked "Why does that lady have a picture of Dorothy Dandridge up there?" Is that Dorothy Dandridge? I did a Google search of pictures of her and the first one I found had a virus attached to the page.
