    Wow, Starband never did that to me. I downloaded Slackware 7 or 8 over it, can't remember now. What did they say when you told them you were just trying to update your OS?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    HughesNet explicitly states in there ToS that ANY download OVER 200MB a day violates the "fair policy". I was told they didn't look at the traffic, just the size of it. You only have unlimited download sizes between certain hours. And its like 6am to 9am, totally sucks. Which is funny, I have poked around they're network a few times, with no repercussions at all. I update windows, and get a 24 hour lockout.
