Sorry I've been gone so stinkin' long! But I'm very happy to say that we have a connection!!! We live kind of in the sticks...pretty close to a bigger city, but far enough away from it (I guess 5 miles is super far??) that we don't have any options for internet. Our options included, get a mobile hot spot (poor internet quality and speed), maybe get AT&T (reliable internet, good price, but only offers to really extremely random locations; your neighbors could get it, but not necessarily you), or the dreaded local cable company who "doesn't have the technology" to only offer internet and not cable along with it (c'mon, we lived in a small Idaho town that was probably 1.5 miles in diameter who offered cable internet without cable!!), thus forcing you to pay what is already an insane amount for those two services, but couple it with the fact that it's AWFUL service! There were days where we wouldn't even get service!! I seriously hated it, plus, I prefer not to have TV, because if we pay for it, we feel like we have to get our money's worth out of it, so we watch it more than necessary. We've always chosen to not get cable, and I hated being forced to have it.
Until a week ago, I found a 4th option! Satellite internet! They come out here, and it's a WAY better price! And I don't have to get cable with it! Wahoo! So we are back online!
And don't you worry, I haven't been idle these last 6 months. I've got lots of stuff to show you.
