Well, finally got the time to look into what DMH suggested, (I think it was him) and that is RIPnet. They are the wireless high speed provider. They use radio towers to beam satelite internet to those that live in the sticks, or boonies as some would describe it. LOL. ...no I don't hear banjos from my neighbours.

It looks like they will be stopping by next week to see if they have line of sight to their towers. If they do, I'll be up and running before the release of GT5 even.

Can't wait until we're car car car car car ing again and indaclub ing again. Maybe I'll get a few Bronze cup rds or some Silver cup nds or maybe even a Gold cup sts... might be wishfull thinking as i'm kinda a middle of the pack (or at least between 6th and 8th) guy.

One thing is for sure though... if I can get satelite internet here, then dodawav clap cheers

Oh and I really want #7 please. lol.

BlackJack, my luck has been very good lately. Just yesterday I got this feeling I should drive out to the old place and check the mail. It's funny because I have been broke lately with the expensive move and all, so I was doing so with the last few litres of fuel.

Well, low and behold I get to the mail box and find two government sales tax credit cheques. 1357.00 sure came in handy yesterday.

It's not over though, I awoke this morning to a very excited MRS_PokerFace proclaiming the new addition into our bank account, back pay for child tax benefit and this months child tax benefit to the tune of 3500.00. Plus I got paid 1595.00 from work. LOL...

I'm bettin' that the internet thingy will fall into place as well.

6000.00 in one day tends to aid in feeling positive for some dang reason. Sad really in this commercialized, consumeristic society, LOL. But I'll take it LMAO.

See you guys SOON! Poker's back baby!

LOL guys, love the idea about buying my own satelite, although I'm sure we all have bought a satelite with the tax money we all pay.

They will be coming this week to see if it'll work, I'll keep ya all updated.
