Yes, I am on dial-up. A few of ya'll mentioned that I may be seven shades of crazy for using dial-up. I just want to assure you all that I am NOT that crazy. Crazy, but not THAT crazy. I live out in the country. We have no cable, no high speed internet, no nuthin'. Not my fault. And yes, it DOES suck. I'm sure there are all kinds of fancy other ways to get internet. I've seen all you show-offs with your laptops and woreless internets. But, those things cost money, yes? I thought so. So, unless we start selling stuff like that at the dollar store, I'll be on dial-up for a while.

As to the music downloads....thanks! I am checking them all out. I like Walmart the best so far, but I have to figure out how to purchase. It won't let me enter a Canadian billing address. Which is kinda weird, since I'm pretty sure my Mastercard works just about anywhere. And Walmart is a fairly large company. They must have a FEW smart people working for them that can figure it out. Whatever. I'll eventually find something.

I'm working on my dad's website today. He's the most pain in the ass client I have evr had, and it's free. But, that's OK. He's Dad.

I was on dial-up until I moved into my mom's basement. (Heck, there has to be *some* perks to basement living at 30, right? Mooching parental wireless is one of them.)

I'm pretty sure the Canadian iTunes sells it's songs for 99 cents *CDN*... they like the whole 99 thing, so ignore the exchange difference. ;) I'm not positive, though, because I'm too cheap to actually *buy* music. I just show up every Tuesday for their free downloads. ;)

We live out in the boonies as well...no cable, dsl available either! We had to spring for the satellite internet, which isn't too terribly bad on the pockets ;-) Not as fast as cable but way faster than dial up. Really chaps my ass since the neighbors have Comcast a few miles down the road! They refuse to connect us. Buttholes.

I've not had dial-up for a few years now, Tara. Those were the dark ages! I have Roadrunner which ties me to TimeWarner cable which I don't like but what can you do? I'm too far out in the sticks to get a Cellular linkup.

I sent you an Email regarding the MP3 download thing. I hope it helps.
