And another thing...
As I was paying my bill at Kinko's ($13 for an hour on a G3 Mac), it occurred to me that for those without web access there is quite a barrier to entry. I noticed another customer, a few PC's away just browsing thru some travel web sites. It occured to me that the poor guy must have wanted to plan a vacation and headed to Kinko's just to ... gasp.... browse the web. I know it is hardly a revelation but I couldn't help thinking what a rip it was for the poor guy. If he hung out there for only 2 hours there he would have payed $26. I should have told him about People PC or a similar company where he could pay the same every month and receive a PC and access. Yikes.

I came home and hugged my cable modem.
