I didn't have time to... 2005-11-14 (111 words)

I'm quoting the "Coyote Within" again, but this really ties in with the "reluctant volunteer" effect: "[]I didn't have time."

the value of reflection 2005-11-11 (90 words)

UMTS Flat 2005-11-11 (167 words)

My new home is not aDSL-able, says the T-Com so I must believe them. I could maybe go for sDSL (symetrical), which would be a blast and works over fr longer lines. But that is a little bit - expensive - for me. An alternative might actually be UMTS (or 3G).
