Re: Perl monger new to Philly

I've had verizon dsl for two years without any major problems.  It
took a little longer to get running (a week or so) when I moved last
month, but that's because there was no existing phone line or service
at the new place.  I've also used roadrunner DSL without problems.  In
~3 years at my mom's house, i remember it going out for one weekend.
I also used to work @, who sells DSL, used to go through
Covad, and not verizon, if you want it but not through verizon.  They
always gave out static ips, though that may not be the case antmore.
