    Lightbulb a guy who knows........

    Hey guys this is just to let you know that I have a friend who knows a ...... (you get the idea) who works for a big internet company. And this guy is going to get me a free copy of win 2000 borland C++ builder and linux. He is also gonna get me some discount cabling and NICs. Just FYI.

    Ask Why?

    I'm only on 56k so I can't download a compiler or copy of linux. As far as cablinging its gonna be a 10Base-T. No thicknet for me!

    You have got to be kidding!

    I do most of my downloads on a 56K connection. In fact my computer is downloading right now and has been for the past 86 hours. So what if it just takes a little longer. It is all the same information!

    Question

    All ISP's in Australia that service 56 k modem lines have a 4 hour limit to how long you can stay online in one time!!

    If anybody knows any differant ISP's that set limits higher?
    Let me know..

    I'm sick of only being able to grab files that are around 50 mb in size in a 4 hour limit...

    Don't mention cable or dsl....I know all the figures about them and costs...about $75 a month is the best for cable here

    I'll stick to $20 a month..56k

    No offence to Australia, but, unless you are living in the outback, why would cable and dsl be so expensive? I'm in Toronto, and the cable price here, which most consider either not bad or high, is $40/month.
