After years of “you’ll have it soon” double-talk from AT&T re my Dad’s ability to get digital cable and thus highspeed Internet access, he broke down and signed up for DSL. Nope, not SBC/Yahoo!, oh well — at least he’s officially online now.
Next step is to upgrade his PC, which is still running Win98 on a P3/800 or something. Very slow. I’ve put together a fairly nice system spec for him.
