It Works – No More TELIKOM!

No Gravatar

This is just a brief post to allow me a few moments of gloating. I’m sitting here in our bedroom office with two computers going, both connected to the Internet at 512KBS via a satellite and four wireless units linking to our office and not a single byte is going through any TELIKOM equipment.

No more dial-ups. No more dropouts (except when it rains very hard). No more outrageous ISP charges, No more excuses:It Just Works!

Thanks to Mark Bleyerveld, our IT consultant, for his genius in getting all of this set up in only a couple of days.

It pays to have smart friends.

    If I put a very tall pole in my back yard could I… Oh, never mind. Anyways, in today’s world better internet service for you, for me, for everyone is almost at the point of being a must. I am very happy with what I have.

    If you put that tall pole in your back yard and built a swimming pool under it you could . . . Never mind. If we were all connected to the web for free, the world would be a better place. There would be no time for war. Half of the world would be engaged in downloading porn. The other half would be either producing it or campaigning against it.

    Hey, wait! How are we going to eat?

    Thanks, Steve. I don’t know what “going to heaven” is really like (now that I think of it, nobody does). However, it couldn’t be a lot better than this. It’s the first time since we have lived in PNG, actually the first time ever, that we’ve had a reliable connection in our home.
