Testing, testing, video testing...

In my ongoing effort to continue retirement, I've been working on the minimizing expenses part of the process.

One of those recent choices has been to disconnect the second phone line used for my cheap dialup ISP and get DSL.

My dialup ISP was $5/mo. but the 2nd phone line was $11/month. The taxes on the 2nd line are $9/mo!! Add all that up and it's cheaper to go to DSL on the house for $13/mo

In addition to faster access, I can now try out some stuff that would be just too painful using dialup. Like online videos more than a minute or two long and attempting to embed videos in the blogger.

This short test vid is our gargage guy who , for some reason, likes to move and leave the containers in front of the mail box. Maybe he's got a beef with the mailman or with me. Who knows but the video is short so it makes a good subject for me use as a test to see how it works.

Wow. A robotic arm on the garbage truck! Our garbage trucks have people who jump off and empty the cans by hand! Of course, I take our garbage to the dump myself, to save money. But we live in the sticks, where that is still allowed.

That is rather suspicious, isn't it?

I love the robotic arm. Maybe it's time for me to apply for one of those jobs.

I'd say you got a pretty good deal for your money! I despise dial-up. I wish my DSL was only $13 a month...we only have one provider, so perhaps that is why I pay $50....
