If you live in a rural area and haven't switched from dial up to high speed internet, you could look into wildblue satellite. Once you use high speed there is no going back. It still amazes me how much information is at my fingertips. Whenever I have a question, I search for the answer and try to familiarize myself with certain helpful sites. I don't know what I could do if that wasn't possible. I love being able to hop on the computer even when I'm in a hurry. I love it!
