I could do a topic.

Thanks for the heads up. Radiks is now owned by the HIDEOUS Earthlink
and it is my understanding that Earthlink does not want to carry DSL
and I would have to drop back to a dial up if I were to remain with Radiks
(mind you I've been a Radiks customer a very long time - hundreds of years
when measured in Internet time). Kinda sucks to come to an end.
I had been thinking of switching to COX for a few seconds.
Or I could simply switch to novia.net and keep the DSL,
since I now own the 675 router I have.
I'd prefer to keep the DSL in light that COX is probably as good/bad
as it will ever be. Any changes COX has or does like being successful and
getiing more customers over time can only be bad for all. COX's
success is a bummer for their customers.
Am I wrong?
What other options do I have?

I don't have a cdburner yet but I could buy some blank cds and help with
installs for Debian and RedHat. Is RedHat 7.1 s'posed to be out by then?
Installfests are my favourite OLUG meetings.
I understand Shadow Boy is on to something cool - Connectiva?
I might have to get a good soul to burn me a copy of that intersting
