Standing in the middle of nowhere
Wondering how to begin
-- "Do It Again", The Kinks
I'm looking for an ISP (since Southwestern Bell hasn't yet made DSL available where I am). Does anyone have relevant praise or complaints about Earthlink, Mindspring, and/or Inlink? Let me know...
The US Post Office has an official response to the scurrilous rumor (marked 'send this to everyone you know!', of course) about them trying to charge 5 cents for every e-mail sent:
- Release No. 45 E-MAIL RUMOR COMPLETELY UNTRUE [USPS, seen on MacInTouch]
No such proposed legislation exists. In fact, no "Congressman Schnell" exists.
The U.S. Postal Service has no authority to surcharge e-mail messages sent over the Internet, nor would it support such legislation.
When I got that e-mail recently I did track it down to the point of finding that it originally referred to the Canadian Post rather than the US Post Office, but I didn't pursue it further. Apparently it's equally false regarding Canada.
TIME says the South Park movie is Sick and Inspired.
Gotta run. More tomorrow.
