Yes, this thread should be somewhere else, but it is here for now. Maybe a moderator could move it? As pretty much everybody here knows by now, and everybody who frequents the Yahoo Groups forum definitely knows, I hate most new things, especially when they involve electronic technology. I especially hate it when electronics and mechanics are combined. I am a total purest when it comes to mechanical things. I have been a professional mechanic for 32 years, and an amateur mechanic for much longer than that. Mechanical things, mostly vehicles, are my main, actually my only hobby.
Anyway, as far as the internet goes, I think it is one of the few actually beneficial uses of new technology, and opens up a whole new world that we never had before. It certainly has it's problems, but IMO, the pros outweigh the cons. I don't really have a problem paying for internet service, but absolutely will not pay for TV or radio.
And while I like the internet, I do not like cell phones. They can be handy at times, but the hassle, safety issues, and ridiculous charges that go with them IMO make them simply not worth it. I have one, a pay as you go type, that costs me $20 every 3 months. I keep it mostly for emergencies. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
