I had a breakthrough with the installation of the cell phone/computer tether last night right before bed and I'm now tethered to the internet! Whooooo Hoooooo!
I'll probably post more on this wonder of technology at a later date, but for now, I think I'm a little bit disappointed. The speed isn't anything near what I was led to expect it would be but it's still much, much better than the old dial up! I'm thinking that there may be something I can do to increase the speed but for now I'm enjoying surfing that's faster than anytime ever before on this computer!
