That is freaking nice. Congratulation.
Yep, it is. There's no DSL or cable anywhere near the house. The seller is leaving the direcway and directv equipment. It's gonna be a serious step up from my ISDN line that i have now.Originally Posted by will1384

- they FAP you - cut your internet down to modem speed or less
if you download more than 169mb in 4 hours
on top of that - I had lots of problems with mine
have a look over at my web page on direcway
If you can start looking into Wisps and something like Cingular wireless internet -
Well, since I don't download porn, movies, music, or other huge files, It'll be fine for me. The only large files I download are patches and programs, and that doesn't happen often. Mostly, just surfing and working from home. Plus, I going to get the professional package with a static IP. That package has a higher cap on it.Originally Posted by will1384
And by the way, your logic is a little screwed up on it being ISDN speed. Just because you can only download 169MB every 4 hours, doesn't mean that it takes that long to download it. So I still wouldn't be waiting 4 hours to get that 169MB. It will still get here MUCH faster than ISDN.
the point he was tryiong to make i think is that you have to wait a ****load to get say a movie finished. It won't take that much but unless it's complte you can't watch it anyways... But if you say you don't download, you'll be fine...
ok so I mesed up with the calculator, a small amountOriginally Posted by blurp
I went and checked it with this website and it was 5.5 hours
with A 64Kbps ISDN line, for a 150mb file

if that steel building in the back isnt on a concrete foundation...my opinion would be to move it behind the house or something...then do this with the left side of the house. but I'm sure thats not in your top 10000 list of priorities... I just think it gives the house more proportion. beautiful house either way.
if you had an extra $150,000 laying around ()
how about this?
We've actually talked about making the right side a mirror image of the left. That entire left side is the master suite. We're thinking of making a game room or den on the right.
And yes, the metal building is on a concrete slab.
The first thing we're going to do (probably this summer) is build a building up behind the first fence in the back yard. It'll be 24x40, with a lean-to about 12 or 15 feet wide on each side. It's gonna have a full kitchen, a 3/4 bath, a hot tub, a pool table, and a few 8' tables and chairs. It will be where my entire family (wife, kids, parents, brothers, and their families: currently 23 and growing) will gather for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My oldest brother has 9 kids, and 2 of them are engaged.
The lean-to's will house a bunch of woodworking tools from the cabinet shop I used to own, and several hundred board feet of cherry, walnut, oak, poplar, and birch wood. Oh, and the tractor and implements.
Anyway, we've got a lot of work cut out for us for the next few years.
