Covad is now our ISP, and stability issues should be resolved. We got the care package with the self-install kit yesterday, and after a quick run to Radio Shack for a 50-foot length of phone cable, along with one(knock on wood) final DNS update, we are back up and running. It's a shame, though. Roadrunner was very nice, and the speed was very enjoyable. It's just a shame that it wound up sucking so badly. Now that we have DSL, my next project is getting linux installed on the new Alpha machine. It has an ARC bios, which means that any install routines that have been worked out by anyone have been hacks. It should be interesting, to say the least. Pathetically, the most daunting thing about the whole project is moving the monitor cable from my PC to the Alpha. Sigh. I guess I'll get started.
