Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Yeah, but a fiber-optic repeater is a commodity, even if newer ones are somewhat better they are backwards compatible. And there will be hundreds installed even in Mountain Home, pop. ~15,000. There are some (relatively minor) costs you have to pay for greater reliability. Cable companies don't have to pay it.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."

What you say is not untrue. Worst part for me is that my neighbor, with phone lines which parallel mine all the way to the box, ends up with 12 Mb of internet speed, while I end up with 2. If I suddenly get 12, summer 2010 must be coming, because that is when it was promised to me too.

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
