For a home user Cable or DSL will give = equally impressive results. Cable has a potentially higher download speed, but few internet sites are capable of utilizing it. You will also be able to rid yourself of the AOL browser and use the much more versatile Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. To me, going cable or DSL is a no brainer. You won't tie up your phone or pay for a second line dedicated to your computer. In my situation, the = final cost of cable was less than the combined cost of AOL plus second line plus higher basic phone rate.   I hope that this helps you and any others on the list in making a = decision.   Stan   Wurlibird1@aol.com wrote: > > Greetings, > > My patience with AOL has about reached its limit for a variety of = reasons. > As such, I am considering changing ISP to a high speed online service > provided by my cable television provider.

Huge crowd, VERY formal and dignified (women in HATS ... in Southern California (!) ... when was the last time you saw a woman wear a HAT??!!), the ENTIRE congregation joined in a procession for the casting of earth on the coffin ... meanwhile I played every Easter hymn in the Hymnal ... my little electronic keyboard has a full-great-to16'-and-mixtures sound that works rather well outside. Nobody lost it, though the Rector came close a couple of times ... but he actually chanted on pitch (!); I went into my hard-a***d professional mode to get through it. Also, mercifully, I had my back to the proceedings, in order to direct the choir.   No word yet as to what went on at the later Presbyterian memorial service. There was to be a soloist, and Bach for the organ music (per the family's request).   May the Angels lead her into Paradise ...   Bud
