     I would love to have DSL.  I could get it from Copper.net for the same 
cost as dialup from EarthLink.  But here, in the world's most technically 
advanced nation, it's not available, even though I can see buildings of a major 
university from my front door.

     And this morning I discovered why I've been having trouble with the wifi 
at the coffee shop I've been going to.  He has two wifi systems, one 4G and the 
other 5G.  He doesn't bother with the 4G, just uses the 5G.  He insists that 
they are identical.  He has no technical background, instead was a Christian 
minister who was tossed out into the street many years ago.

     Welcome to Amerika, where people with no technical background know 
everything and people with 30 years experience know nothing.
