Cool, but my crummy connection doesn’t want to load it. Hughesnet doesn’t deliver what they claim but that is the best I can get in the boonies.

My daughter and son-in-law have Hughes Net, even with the highest data package, they only get 50 gigs of monthly high speed downloading during "peak" hours, and once that monthly "peak" amount is used up, their data downloading is not shut off but is throttled back to near dial up territory.


Added: They also get 50 gigs during "off peak" hours, but they are generally sleeping during those hours.

To see the junk that we've put up there, go here: Stuff in Space
It's a pretty cool (unfortunately also kinda sad) interactive site.

Yup, if I have to do something important online I wait until 2 AM once something better and less expensive comes around Hughesnet is gone.

Wow. It's beautiful, so much so it looks fake to me. I guess that's sad.
