I believe you may not have voted - this is not the comment section for voting, click on the "BEST BLOG" and "BEST POST" links in the story above.
Those will take you to the proper place to vote.
And be sure to get your paper trail while your there!!!

Come on folks - those other guys have a big lead - lots of early voting (maybe the machines will not print 20% of those!)
Go Brad Go!
Wampum server is extremely slow to post my votes - maybe it's all the Bradonians sending in those vvotes now!

Wow! Going to the voting site solved a few mysteries for me. My little dial-up server heah in Maine is handling ALL the traffic! Of course I attempted to vote, but my entry was frozen for forever. Maybe I'll try again after midnight.
Anyway, the ISP's lines have been unaccountably busy for the past week and a half - poor access. NOW I know why. Later, Brad!!!

My votes hung for about 8 minutes before they posted and that was with DSL!

DSL? What in the name of all that's newfangled might THAT be??
Prexar doesn't recognize the animal - they claim that demand for high-speed wasn't great enough to offer anything too slick. Besides, we don't have fiber-optic lines, and no communications tower within range.
So what is Prexar doing running the Koufax show???

So that's why it took so long! I don't have firer-optic either, just plain old copper phone line. Fortunatly I live close enough to a hub that I can get it. About a year ago I dropped Pacific Bell because I was upset with their cost after they became SBC. I called up ATT because they were offering a cheap phone/DSL package. Once my phone service was up and running with a 1 year contract I ordered the DSL. During my whole ordering process I told them many times that the DSL was my main reason for switching. When I ordered the DSL they told me they were not able to provide both services at the same time and I would need SBC phone service to get ATT DSL.
So after a year of dial-up misery I switched back to SBC phone and DSL. 2 months later ATT bought SBC - go figure!
I guess your only option would be Direct-TV satellite service with their DSL, but I think it's fairly expensive.

Bluebear 2 -
S'right! Direcway or the waits. We already have DirecTV; but 2 satellite dishes seems somewhat excessive and we've held off so far.
Verizon has its eyes on us, though (unfortunately for privacy rights). There'll be fiber-optic in here before too long, I'll wager, and no one's internet usage will have any vestige of privacy, ever again.
