Ways of Getting Online
By Eddie Hines
Today there are many ways of getting online. We will explore the three most commonly used as well as a few you may not be quite as familiar with.
Dialup, DSL, and cable are probably what most people are familiar with. We will look at these three first. Dialup is the old standby when no other method is available. Some areas may not be wired for a DSL or cable connection. The speed available is up to 56K, but you rarely get that speed with a dialup connection. AOL (American Online) still offers only dialup service. Dialup is used through and non-digital phone line to connect to the internet,
DSL is used by companied for high speed which helps with efficiency.
Available speeds for DSL is up to 3MBP’s which is pretty fast. Contrary to what many people may believe, DSL is still considered a dialup connection, only the modem never disconnects. With DSL service, you must have phone service with the company in order to use their DSL service.
Cable connection is becoming more and more popular. A cable
connection has speeds of up to 8MBP’s. This time of connection works well with the VOIP system (digital phone). Cable can connect many people at once; however, if you get too many people online at once, you can have a bottleneck effect which can slow down the performance. Most cable companies “bundle” their cable and internet, so if you don’t have cable with the same company it can be pricey. Some of the other types of internet connections are T1, satellite, GPRS/EDGE, 1Rtt/EVDO and Wi-Fi. We’ll take a brief look at these. T1 is used in corporate environments and hotels only. The speeds of the T1 can reach up to 15MBP’s. This type of service coincides with business telephone lines.
Satellite has very fast downloads speeds, but slow upload speeds and
it is very expensive.
On Saturday February 24th, 2007, Crown Computers will turn 5 years old! To celebrate we are going to have special events each month leading up to the big event…a big party and dinner to celebrate the 5 years. At that party a BIG prize will be given away. To help qualify people to win that BIG prize, each club member and person who have given over 5 referrals in the past 5 years get one ticket. The rest of the tickets will be given to the first five people that can answer the 12 trivia questions that we are going to ask, one a month. If you can email me with the RIGHT answer BEFORE the end of the month, you will get an additional ticket. For those who get it right within 24 hours of receiving this newsletter you get an additional gift mailed to you. Well good luck to all. Answer from April’s question: Cyrix
GPRS/EDGE is used by T-Mobile and Cingular in the US as well as all
of Europe. GPRS has similar speeds of a desktop modem, but EDGE offers speeds of up to 400KBps. If you are going to use this service with a laptop, you will have to purchase a PC card to gain access. Cell phones and PDA’s pay monthly for this built-in service.
What was the first personal computer? (Hint: you may want to go to blinkenlights.com for a clue)
1Rtt/EVDO is used by Verizon and Sprint. 1Rtt has a speed of about 70KBPs but EVDO can reach up to 800KBPs.
As with the GPRS/EDGE you need to purchase a PC card for access from a laptop and cell phones and PDA’s have this built-in. (continued on pg. 3)

The Patience To Wait for the Vision
Though it tarries, wait for it…. — Habakkuk 2:3
Patience is not the same as indifference; patience conveys the idea of someone who is tremendously strong and able to withstand all assaults. Having the vision of God is the source of patience because it gives us God’s true and proper inspiration. Moses endured, not because of his devotion to his principles of what was right, nor because of his sense of duty to God, but because he had a vision of God. "...he endured as seeing Him who is invisible" (Hebrews 11:27 ). A person who has the vision of God is not devoted to a cause or to any particular issue— he is devoted to God Himself. You always know when the vision is of God because of the inspiration that comes with it. Things come to you with greatness and add vitality to your life because everything is energized by God. He may give you a time spiritually, with no word from Himself at all, just as His Son experienced during His time of temptation in the wilderness. When God does that, simply endure, and the power to endure will be there because you see God. "Though it tarries, wait for it..." The proof that we have the vision is that we are reaching out for more than we have already grasped. It is a bad thing to be satisfied spiritually. The psalmist said, "What shall I render to the Lord...? I will take up the cup of salvation..." (Psalm 116:12-13 ). We are apt to look for satisfaction within ourselves and say, "Now I’ve got it! Now I am completely sanctified. Now I can endure." Instantly we are on the road to ruin. Our reach must exceed our grasp. Paul said, "Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on..." (Philippians 3:12 ). If we have only what we have experienced, we have nothing. But if we have the inspiration of the vision of God, we have more than we can experience. Beware of the danger of spiritual relaxation.
