    My time here may be gone

    I just got news that i may not have internet access,not to long in the future. Higher supervision on the war path,they had to come in over the weekend because of major problems (fire) here with a large boiler at work. Now we all have to pay. They will be watching start and quit times,for hardhats,take away internet access,on an on. So if i am not around as much or at all. This is so everyone will know why.
    It has been a pleasure and maybe i can drop in once in a while on someones computer. I only have super slow dail up where i live,and i cannot go back to that.

    That is HORRIBLE news for all here as well as you!! I know that I can speak for many here that your input is very valuable and much appreciated. Jobs are getting scarcer to come by in many parts and you have to do what ever necessary to keep it. I am hoping that your upper management takes a little time to chill out and rethink their harsh decisions. Work moral is important too.

    You will be missed Ron. Try to find a local library with free internet access so we don't have to wait so long between visits. Thanks for every mib you personally ID'd for me here!! Take care of yourself. I just can't believe we are losing you.

    Regards,

    Roger

    Hey Ron,

    Just in case you haven't researched it, I recently did a Computer-mod for my boss. He is in an area where he only has dial up access. I ordered him a "PCMCIA Adapter" for his Desktop PC, Then he got a "Wireless PCMCIA Card" from his Wireless phone provider, Sprint. It's very fast, like 748+ up and down stream. It's about $35 a month, dsl rates. If you have a tower near you thats always a possibility. Just my 2cents, Hate to see you do without if you didn't know you may have another option.

    Oh, that stinks, Ron! I'm only a newbie but you've already been very helpful to me many times over. I hope the powers-that-be back off and let you have Internet access again soon.
