Hey Steve, Ishmeal etc.

How about doing some roaming - use the GRIC dialer. This way you can use
some dialup POP not located in New York area.
That would ad to your credibility... you would at least have done an effort
to conceal your identity

Nope :-)

1. I Nuked Linux...Win 2K is Light Years Ahead.

I am NOT a Linux advocate (in fact, certainly
dislike certain aspects of it.)  Stability
of the system shouldn't be an issue at all, the
OS is definitely not unstable in competent hands,
on quality hardware.

Even though I don't like how it works,  it does
what it does, VERY VERY well.

One major aspect of commodity computer stability
is that different pieces of hardware can be
exercised differently by different OSes.  Free
OSes often FULLY exercise your hardware (in fact,
free OS developers often review the software
VERY carefully for performance and other such
enhancements.)  It is likely that Linux is
exercising a bug in your hardware...

Commercial code is mostly NOT a labor of love,
and careful optimization of the software with
full utilization of hardware isn't in the cards
with commercial development.  I suggest that you
be wary of the hardware that Linux has been failing
for you on, and look forward to some spectacular

It sometimes takes a month, or sometimes a year for
hardware related failures to occur.

In responding to this, I am assuming that your complaint
isn't a troll!!!  My kindly advice is to review the
hardware and to try to diagnose it's failures before
depending too much on the reliability and/or stability
of your system...  In the longer term, it makes little or
no difference as to which OS you are running, given
faulty hardware.  With your described short-term
observations, you have seen a problem while running
Linux, and switching OS is only an expedient (but
not likely a complete) solution.

Good luck!!!
