    Strange day on the Internet

    Can't get to google, can't get to earthlink past the front page, DSL acting like s l o w d i a l u p. Think 36kb at best. downloads nice and fast tho. email works. Tracerts and pings time out tho. Usually when I get to a core router near atlanta. Anyone else having a funky day? Scam.com is fine tho.

    Re: Strange day on the Internet

    When the Internet 'slows down' it can ba alikened to rush-hour traffic on
    the streets of a large city. Things get jammed up and move slower. I
    ususally notice this occurence around four o;clock in the afternoon and
    especially on late Friday afternoon. Especially just prior to a major
    holiday.
    In other words, a lot of peopls 'jump on' the internet all at once. Then things
    get slow and one has to just be patient and get in line. It is worse of you
    have an older machine and especially on dial-up connection. THat is especially
    when one gets 'disconnects'.

    On that note, I am looking at Dell, and I am wondering are there any Made in the USA computers that are blazing fast since I may be looking to buy a brand new computer for in college with a scanner that burns books on DVD since I am Deaf I don't need music burned on DVD and I really like Abode pdf format e-books, and I need a color printer and XP Windows seems so popular but I am more interested in quality and I have bookmarked this one for later if some computer programs are not that too good then I can go back to get some of the more reliable and better computer programs from http://www.oldversion.com

    look for a computer with a Pentium 5 or greater speed processor. Also,

    the latest Intel processor chip product. It is calle Contrino, Sentrino, or

    some such designation. Also, high speed DSL is desirable. No good to have

    a high speed machine if you are still opn dial-up. I think high speed DSL

    is now going for about 45.00/mo. base price. Taxes, etc. will run it up to

    about fifty dollars/mo.

    If you can go direct satellite with the high speed modem, that is better than

    initially going over hard wire phone lines. That is how my connection is;

    hard wire connection to house phone line. Dials up to local service, then

    it hits the phone co's satellite transmission set-up. A lot of DSL's are

    configured this way.

    Satellite direct, such as if you has Dish-Network TV. they can configure your

    service so that you go right out from your home satellite dish and hit

    a satellite orbiting at 33,000 ft. Relays to another ground station to

    make the link connect to the internet. Then you're talking to other folks

    on their computers with their various connsections; dial-up and DSL.

    Draw back with satellite is that when a storm sets in you will experience

    some breaks in communication due to heavy rain cells. Maybe you've

    seen this on your TV if you have satellite dish reception.\

    Maybe you will want to start a Forum on Scam.com for computer gear,

    configuration, services and technology. I am sure there are lots of people

    interested in this and there are also some scams involvong computer

    and internet operations.

    I personally would like to see a group of people really get fed up and band

    together and jointly do something to shut down the hackers, spammers

    and phfishing operations. This material could be addressed on there as well.
