The Yooper connection
« on: June 05, 2007, 09:57:31 AM »
This is my first test of what I have put together so we can be up north working on our property for days at a time and still be on the forum and take care of all our internet needs and other web customers.  I have most of the programs I use daily stuffed into this laptop now. I am currently connected to the internet via my cell phone with only two bars of service. Thats about what we get right at the cabin.

 

I just uploaded the above photo and it took 1001 1002 1003 1004   only about 4 seconds. :)

We added a wireless keyboard and mouse yesterday as you can see in the photo. That makes it much easier to use. I just cant type on that litttle keyboard or work those finger pads.  I just need to download spampal and thunderbird to get my email set up and this baby should be good ta go!  We can even use it in our woods as we get better recepetin there then at the cabin.  :)    Maybe a webcam one day from da wilds of da U.P. eh?  :)

It took me 11 seconds from the time I hit the post button until I was able to hit reply for this message. I can live with that in exchange for what were getting. 8)

I have unlimited long distance within the U.S. but the internet service is separate. We had to buy the wire to connect, and the service is 24.95 a month unlimited connection within the U.S.

Jeff,

You sent that file that fast with 2 bars on your cell phone?
I'm pretty much without internet access while in Tenn but if I could do something like that at least to check my emails and this forum I would be a happy wannabe hillbilly!

Of course I'd have to buy a laptop, any suggestions?

I loved the wireless keyboard and mouse for a while but with the way I move around it was just easier to get used to the cramped notebook keys.  :-\

I'd have to get the extra keyboard, as my XXXL gorilla paws don't fit on laptops.  ;D

Sounds like that setup is still as good as dialup. ;)

That wireless keyboard works well from up to 20 feet away.  I set Jeremy up last night. He stopped by and was using the laptop where you see it set.  I had the keyboard over here. Both will work at the same time. ;D   He didnt know what was going on as I had not told him about the keyboard yet. :D

Just make sure you don't get connected to a Canadian tower. I have had that happen fishing the St. Mary's. Your bill can go up fast.

I've have friends in Stalwart that have that happen when they are in the Soo shopping. They check their bill every month for that, cause it does happen. Altell removes the charges when that happens.

kevjay, you'd have been safe anyway. Can you walk from MA to MI in 60 days? Might have to have a couple extra pairs of those Herman Munsters to do it.  ;D I need to find a New Transmission Lottery ticket somewhere. ::)

I feel for ya bro. Last week I gave my mechanic $850 to get a tranny (used; 19,000 miles) for my daughter's little Hyundai. You know the ones; those disposable vehicles. I owe him another nearly $400 when he gets it done today or tomorrow.   

I ain't complainin though. Mech says I was lucky she didn't fry the engine too she drove it around in 1st gear for many miles. Needlessly.  ::)

Have you checked with the hotline on this WWW ??? I found a tranny for it a couple hundred cheaper but just didn't wanna mess with changing it out. If I had the time I coulda done it myself and saved prolly $500 or more.

Don, there is a wire that connects your cell phone directly to your computer. WIth a bit of software, your phone becomes your modem.
