online * is more than just bits per second and ping time.

network speed is going to become cheap and easy to use, and
it will be all about services.

that's why you'll have to pay for * services through MS,
or thru any other company providing services. services will
be much more than just meeting rooms for other gamers, it
will be secure connections, hosted content for you, live in-
game content from live talent on the net (video, audio), and
games will not only be contained on a DVD, they will be
pulled in real-time from the world at large.

don't sweat the cost of services though, because you'll be
paying less for your bandwidth.

right now, most people have a pretty *Internet connection,
and I include DSL and Cable and ISDN.

the next wave of Internet access will include Ethernet to your
home, in some places _gigabit_ Ethernet, and ATM is not
going away but will get faster, and high-speed wireless for rural
areas or in populated areas where it is for whatever reason to
get ea*ts to dig trenches for cables.

so if you want bandwidth, show the telco industry that you want
it by using services and just know that you are buying the next
wave of network. not necessary to be quick to feeling ripped off
by having to pay for services.

nope I don't work for MS or any Telcos or Internet services
company.

We should have no fear of the future because it will not suck.

 
 
 

1. failure to power up, keyboard not seen, drive A not seen, monitor not seen

I have a 2nd hard drive installed on the computer.  
Tried to install a network card and a scanner card.
Powered on the computer and it would go through a memory test and go
up to 16000.  There would be memory error message 201. Windows95 would
start to come on, memory test again, windows, on and on
It is beeping 6 times-2 long and 4 short beeps upon powering up.
Went into setup menu and selected revert to factory settings.
Turned off the computer.  Turned it back on.
The 2 cpu lights come on-green and amber.  The keyboard does not light
up.  The monitor remains blank and drive A does not light up.
I put a rescue disk in drive A and it is not seen.

Help
