I set-up cable internet access a couple of weeks ago. The ads stated it was 3 times faster than DSL. (Note: I went from dial-up to cable. I also bought a new Dell with Vista Windows, a couple of weeks ago.)


I am very pleased with the cable access speeds. My cable company (Mediacom) offered cable internet access for $19.95/month, for 12 months and I can drop my ISP.


However, the Vista Windows compatibility problem is another story that was explained in a previous thread.

Vista seems to be a naightmare come true.



I'm going to stick with XP until it's no longer supported.



Dobe: Can you downgrade back to XP?

Given your usual posts, that's probably best Skee.

I'm not sure and I wouldn't even try. I have this mental picture of my Vista cpu exploding and traffic lights going out for a 2-block area!


When we got the new computer, we attempted to transfer our XP files to the new cpu Vista and quickly found out that a lot of our XP files weren't going to work. Now, we maintain 2 cpu's (XP & Vista). 


(Sidenote for those who didn't know or are "tech-challenged" like me: You don't have to burn CD's to transfer programs from one cpu to another. Belkins has a transfer cable which allows you to pick and choose what programs to transfer from one cpu to another. Saved us a ton of time.)

Sorry, I'm not familiar with the term "WGAF".

I think it means...Who Gives A F**k?



You are getting a great deal on your broadband.

Vista came on my new laptop and it really isn't too bad.  I don't like all the built in DRM stuff, but other than that it is quiet nice.
