I felt weird just typing it. I figured that alone would "put me on the list."

I seem to remember them being in the news like 10 years back, something about 1st amendment, or something. I figure it to be a hoax group, or something, but who knows.

dude, the economy has tanked twice in the last 10 years. Herman miller chairs should be everywhere about 90% off and third hand cheap. shop around.

maybe you wouldn't need so many power strips if you didn't have so many power strips to plug in.

Custom wired the office. Cannot remember how many breakers we had in there but to give you an idea we had 12 outlets with top and bottom both on their own separate circuit breaker (24 total) when we were still running the buisness out of our house. Those particular power strips were for the tons of external modems we were using. I was an ISP selling dialup accounts. Made it all the way to 254 phone lines before we sold the business in 1999. It was a very strange business to be in. Completely changed out all of our computers/modems 2-3 times a year as technology changed (2400 baud, 9600 baud, 14.4, 28.8, etc). Phone bills came sandwiched between cardboard flats and shrink wrap. An interesting time to be doing what we were doing (having to explain to people what the internet was). Amazing that it was only ~20 years ago when we started by selling email and newsgroups via a BUD satellite system. I think we were charging $5-$10 a year for email off our massive 100 MB hard drive. Our first real internet pipe was 56K and I think we paid about $3,000 a month for it.

eh... bandwidth is getting much cheaper! most recent quote for 50 meg pipe (redundant between 8 providers) i got was $15/meg which i consider very damn cheap considering redundancy and "smart" routing (automatically finds best pipe to use on per-connection basis.)

I will never forget paying $80 a meg (I bought 4 sticks for $320) for RAM. I was a god at one time because I had a 386-40 (yep - FORTY!) with five whole megs of ram. Everyone I knew had 4 meg max. The extra meg really kicked *** in Win3.1
