Off Topic.....

Recommended Posts

....But, then how much is on topic here.My cable connection was pooping out on me this evening. Pages were much slower coming up or wouldn't load at all.Frustrated, I went to the Toast site to check my speed before I placed a call to tech support to find out the story. The Toast page wouldn't come up.Then, as fast as my connection bacame slow, it got fast again. Decided to do the speed test anyway.The following link shows my speed results which is now more than twice as fast as it was before all this bagan this evening. Just how goofy can things get? Am I going to press my cable provider about this newfound speed? Absolutely NOT !http://www.toast.net/performance/results.a...4&loadtime=2.31 http://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/hook5.gif

Joe,Are you living on a cable system operated by Comcast? They have been on a nationwide system reconfiguration of their cable modem network. They advertised that they were doubling their data rates to cable modem customers.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN

Shame on you, Joe, bringing up these things in the forum.So, just to punish you, here is something that is not remotely related to your off-topic topic. It is an off-off-topic topic (I'm getting dizzy!):http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/70314.jpgI know that you will appreciate it, though. Got to be brave to go fishing in the Caribbean!Best regards.Luis

Hey Joe, I'm jealous. My microwave connection is just barely faster than ISDN, and near the lower end of "cable". $39/month.Luis: The wife and I spent three nights at the Sedona Golf Resort as a 40th anniversary gift from a GOOD friend.Here's me golfing on Sat. Note, there are no sand sharks in the backgrounds.I played with a father and son from "the Valley" ( Phoenix ).The son flew them up in a rented C172SP as a birthday gift for the father. They took a taxi from the Sedona airport. Note "the weather".http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/70329.jpgMe at a 171 yd. par three. OK, I look like an anxious dufus.It hit the green, I missed the 15 foot put, and got a kick-in par. I've done MUCH worse. :-)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/70330.jpg

Luis,You bet I can appreciate it! That image is very well done and I'm going to get plenty of mileage from it.Did I ever tell you about the Tiger Shark I saw out at Chandeleur? The thing had to be 15' in length in estimating it's size relative to the Redfish it was after.From the air, it looked motionless just outside the third bar and had those Redfish pushed right up to water's edge.We routinely would fish from atop the second bar in elbow deep water. I would never wade deeper than thigh deep after that. Tiger Sharks will eat you!Joehttp://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/hook5.gif

My goodness, Dan, that is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. The colors and the rugged terrain are stunning and the contrast with the well-manicured green is marvelous!I found some pictures of Ed's home, Lake Havasu, and it also is incredibly beautiful. Those desert areas sure are impressive.Happy anniversary to you and your wife. Hope that you had a good time.Best regards.Luis

I went in with funny pain in my chest, half hour later I was in the Cardiac Cath lab, watching them run pipe in me on the big screen.Heart Guy was absolutely astounded that no damage was done. Now I gotta cut back on cigars and exercise more. And pay one heck of a medical bill,I am sure.Doc Bryant

Not good news, Doc.In the face of bad news, sometimes it's good to interject a little levity....A man goes to the doctor for a check-up. After the tests are done, the doctor meets with the patient and begins with a long deep-breathed, hmmmmmmmm.You're going to have to stop eating all that rich food, he says. And drinking all that whiskey and smoking those cigaretts are out of the question. Also, you're going have to quit chasing those women around the way you do.Well doc, the patient asks, will I live longer?No, the doctor says frankly. But, it'll seem like it. http://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/hook5.gif
