A big problem with Netcom is it that it has no web server,
and its ftp server is totally overwhelmed.

I use nw.com for my web pages and netcom for everything else.

Big bandwidth webservice at reasonable rates

Does anyone have a better suggestion?  I have been shopping
around for a reasonably priced 28KB SLIP connection.  Have
not found one yet.

We have the right to defend ourselves and our
property, because of the kind of animals that we        James A. Donald
are.  True law derives from this right, not from
the arbitrary power of the omnipotent state.            jamesd@netcom.com
