So, because I’m so inept, I can’t figure out how to get the router at my
large house to work quite right. We’ve got SBC DSL and doing a ping
from my computer, I drop >50% of my packets sent. I assume this should
not be happening.
If you can fix it, then please let me know. Also, if having 38 people
sharing one DSL line plain and simple means that I drop tons of packets,
let me know about that, too.
Anyway, if you can fix it, you can go on a date with one of many
beautiful and smart young ladies (and men, too) depending on your
preference. Seriously, we’re talking about 4 girls and 2 guys that
volunteered, and they’re all pretty desirable. Think about that – fix
the internet and have affection lavished upon you…
If this sounds appealing, then contact me off-list and we’ll work
something out. First come first served.
PS – We can give you money if you don’t want to go on a date. But you do. Trust me.
