I thought the whole point to discontinuing analog TV service and freeing up that bandwidth was to provided wide area Internet. *facepalm*

The point to discontinuing analog TV service was to be able to sell off bandwidth to private companies who wanted it and were lobbying for it. Just another case of Americans being sold out again by their government.

yeah close... a p3 800-something, you guessed the ram and were close to the hard disk space (40 GB). Fully functional battery, and it does everything i need it to (which is why I can't bring myself to plunk down $300-700 for a newer netbook/laptop). I hear what you are saying (really) but it's honestly VERY nice to be able to use old hardware when it can be used, and it just seems a shame to abandon working code.
