Sci-Fi Friday Miracles

First YAY! - I'm here! I had no internet access last night (The Horror!) and was paniced I'd miss BSG discussion this evening. Phew. Now, after yet another close call and getting darned tired of not being able to download, I think I may bite the bullet and upgrade to DSL. I took a look at cable internet, but my best option (I say sarcastically) are the blood sucking leeches at Comcast and I really don't want to give them any more of my money. Plus all the taxes, fees, and lease charges they put in the fine print add up fast.

Second YAY!, the podcast for 'Scar' is up and Ron has company. :) Sadly, still no imput from the actors, but he's letting the people who actually wrote tonight's ep speak. Maybe this one will be fun and informative.

Third YAY!, Capote reopened here. It played at a theatre on the other side of town when it was first released, but now it's at the theatre five minutes from me. Great timing because it's mom's birthday this weekend and she wants to see it. And I got her actual gifts. She hates getting gifts for her birthday because it reminds her it's her birthday. Yes, I like to torture people in case you couldn't tell.

Fourth and final YAY!, inlovewithnight is writing an AU fic entitled 'Racket Boys' in which Horatio and Archie are 1920's (?) gangster hit men. It's like crack I tell ya. And luckily she's been supplying a chapter a day. :)
Hee! 20s, 30s, it's not terribly clear, I don't think it entirely matters. Oh, wait, I referenced the Marx Brothers, so it's probably 30s? I have no idea. I'm not putting a TON of energy into accuracy, 'mfraid.

I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)
Forgot about the Marx Brothers. I guess that would make it the 30s. I'm a James Cagney fan so I keep envisioning his gangster films that were set in the 20s. ;-)
try tds metrocom. that's where i get my dsl. waaaay better than comcast. plus, if you say my name when you sign up, i get money off my bill.

for highspeed internet, you get a dsl router (which you can make wireless with your laptop, which is totally awesome btw). i also get my local and long distance (which is free for continental us) through tds, and my monthly bill is $75 for all of that.

everyone there is really nice. you actually get to talk to a human being, and i've already gotten about four people hooked on tds.

i know, i sound like a commercial.
Thanks for the info. I'll look into it. Though, it looks like it may be outside what I was budgeting. Right now all I know is it won't be Comcast.
Yay for you going got DSL! You will not be sorry. I am so glad we did it. There are several good sources out there (we have SBC in combination with the phone bill). I have been very happy with their service so far. I would not give Comcast a red cent, as we have DirectTV ;)

A Horatio/Archie fic with them as hit men? I MUST read this.
I'm leaning toward the deal SBC is currently offering. I may even able to lower my phone service charges in the process.

Read the fic! Read the fic! :-)
