#HomeAtLast

Home, at last, Barry and I returned this past Thursday evening. Now that Internet is setup and I am settled in, once again blogging is an option.  Once everything is settled and my computer is up to par my plans are to get back into working on the Digital Business Cards.  Figuring the low price of purchasing a domain for $10 a year and using Google Apps for $5.00 a month is worth the effort in getting back into the Digital Business Card business.


Friday morning Excede came to install my Satellite Internet connection, expensive.  The install date was originally on Wednesday but when the technician came and said it was going to be $120, it had to be canceled.  That was quite upsetting, all the while in an agitated state, so I contacted Excede after the technician left to cancel the service.  Because they did not want to lose me as a customer they asked if a $49.99 credit was satisfactory, it was.  Friday when the technician returned, he told us that it would cost only $70.00.

Exede Satellite Internet Service via DishNetworkAfter he setup the Internet he asked me if they mentioned the 10 gig cap, which they did not.  Saying though that from 12:00pm to 5:00pm was free time, that calmed me down a little, it's not showing that any data has been downloaded as of yet, so maybe the cap really means, do not be greedy and stupid. 

Basically, living way out in the middle of nowhere, until more companies are able to provide more cost efficient Internet and television services, the satellite companies are going to suck everything out of the consumers in those boondocks areas.  $60.00 a month for 10gb of data is quite steep, so for you X-box users that are living way out, this is not the way to go, unless you are one of those night time gamers.
