Top Story of the Month
Bashing the Baby Bells with BROADBAND!
By Eddie L Hines Back in 1996 there was a new piece of software available to computers called IP or Internet phone. It was the first technology that allowed you to hear and speak to people over the internet through your computer and….it sucked. But there were 2 main reasons for that. 1. The PC was too slow and 2. It was over dialup. These 2 setbacks have been resolved finally as the Broadband generation of internet access is born. Now up until now you have been paying Bellsouth if you wanted to place a phone call inside your home. They first started with location based billing, then nights and weekends, then 10 cents a minute, now they give you all you can eat. But what is that costing you. Below is a chart explaining what you would pay Bellsouth to make calls, and what you would pay using KCC Broadband Phone Service powered by Lightyear Alliance…
Unlimited Local and L/D
Unlimited Local and L/D
As you can see, Bellsouth’s goal is to take all your money and run! Would you try a new service if you knew someone you cared about was getting paid off some of that monthly phone bill or do you want it all to go to Ma Bell? Well let me tell you about the service. For only $30.73 a month you can have unlimited local and long distance service that piggybacks off your Cable modem broadband connection. For those with DSL you do either have to wait until Bellsouth no longer requires you to also use their local service plan or you can switch (through me) to the
Bashing the Baby Bells... (cont.)
Cable modem service. This monthly price, billed through your debit or credit card automatically each month, allows you to transfer your existing phone number across so you don’t have to go through the hassle of getting a new number. It also allows you to keep your 911 service and avoid all the junk fees that Bellsouth charges you every month (you know those charges at the end of your bill?) The service also allows you to only need one contact number. With the NEW find me/follow me feature, when you give out your VOIP number and you are not home to answer it, the caller will then have the option of finding you, based on the available numbers you program into the VOIP box through your account web site. That way, you no longer have to give our 4 contact numbers and have people calling all the numbers you aren’t at to find you! Additionally, you can now check your voice mails through your email account. This benefits you because you no longer have to wait until you get home to get those important messages. If you near a computer with internet access, you can listen to your messages online (cool feature!). You can also take the box with you to any location with broadband access and use the phone there like it would be your home phone. This is great for that high school senior who can now go off to college then the real world without having to change his or her phone number OR pay $99 each time they want to set up a number in their dorm or their apartment. I will tell you more features and benefits in the coming months but if this is all you need to sign up, then please go to the link below and do it! You can finally let ma Bell…RETIRE! https://www.lightyear.net/voip/order/did.ly?agent= 2073&Rep=390445
Spiritual Word of the Month
Count On It!
Read: Galatians 6:1-10 Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. —Galatians 6:7 Bible In One Year: Daniel 1-3
A children's book called The Chance World describes an imaginary planet where everything happens unpredictably. For example, the sun might rise one day or it might not, and it might appear at any hour. Some days the moon might come up in its place. One day you might jump up and not come down, and the next day find gravity so strong you can't even lift your feet. Scottish biologist Henry Drummond commented that in such a place, where natural law was nonexistent, "reason would be impossible. It would become a lunatic world with a population of lunatics." We should be thankful for the dependability of the natural laws that the Creator has set in motion. They are a great benefit to us if we recognize and respect them. If we violate those laws, however, we will suffer the consequences. That is also true of God's spiritual laws, such as the one in today's text. The person who ignores God's standards and caters to sinful appetites can expect destruction. But the person who follows the leading of the Holy Spirit will experience the blessings of everlasting life. God's laws never fail. For better or worse, you will reap what you sow. Count on it! —Richard De Haan
Surer than autumn's harvests Are harvests of thought and deed; Like those that our hands have planted, The yield will be like the seed. — Harris When we sow seeds of sin, we can count on a harvest of judgment. FOR FURTHER STUDY How Much Does God Control? When We Just Can't Stop

How to Automatically Reopen Windows When You Log On
By default, when you log off Windows, the programs and documents that you had open are closed and they don't reopen when you log back on. Did you know you can change this behavior? Here's how:
Faxing From Your Cell Phone
Some people asked me how you would send a fax through your cell phone if you were not at home. Several of our readers wrote to suggest that he use eFax or Send2fax. It was my understanding that he wanted to be able to send from fax software on his computer rather than via a Web-based service, but that's certainly one alternative. John M. tells us that he uses WinFax with a cell phone and it works fine. It's also possible to send a fax directly from your cell phone with a data account, if you have the right phone and your account is configured for it. For a discussion of sending a fax via a T-Mobile account, see: http://www.wxpnews.com/rd/rd.cfm?id=050927TI-Cel l_Faxing
