I would love to, but
I have bought a fixed IP, which wasnt cheap
I dont think I could say that patiently to a sales person. Unless someone
from eircom will cancel my fixed IP + mail backup and some ISP will set up
the UUCP on the other end
That is just for a nixer I did. If I mentioned UUCP to my boss in my
perminant job, I think he would keel over! (not a pleasant history with
esats old UUCP system)
