Thanks for the info about dyndns.  I haven't noticed yet if my IP has
changed; it's only been a month or so.  I had Speakeasy for about 5
years at my previous place.  I had the One-Link service (no home
phone).  It was great.  It is pricey compared to offerings from
Verizon or Comcast in terms of bandwidth.  I was paying $60 per month
for a 1.5/384 line.  Downtime was practically non-exsistent.  I can't
remember a time I was with out internet with them.  With Comcast, I
noticed my download speed will go from over 1200KB/sec to 300KB/sec.
Overall Speakeasy is great.  Very good technical support.  I wish I
could use them right now.  I'm moving again in 8 months, so hopefully
I can go back to them,
