Looks like my new DSL is working! I am very impressed. I ordered DSL through Sonic.net. They promised to have my DSL activated (via SBC) on June 21, although they hinted that it might be active earlier. Sure enough, while we were unloading the moving truck, I plugged in the DSL equipment (which had been delivered a few days before), and got a solid green light (solid green lights are good).
A gargantuan “thank you” goes out to my good fiends who toiled for hours to get all my stuff from the old place to the new: Danielle Cassley, Tantek Çelik, Bob Grosso, Mike Kobb and Russ Sanon. I could not have done this without them
