Which leads me to ask about satellite connections.

We are in the unfortunate position of being too far away from the DSL shelf
and on a rural road where cable doesn't(& won't) run. Satellite seems to be
our only hope of a decent internet connection. You'll note I said "decent"
- our phone lines won't even suppport 56k so *anything* is better than what
we have! 

Has the internet decentralized/globalized business? Yes. But I can tell you
from experience, ya really have to *want* to live in the boonies! ;) But I
digress. So how about those satellite connections?
