I need to devise a FINALLY tag, it would work for this, when MJ officially came back, and when Barry Bonds finally breaks that damn record.

No, it doesn't. Unless you sang

Excite@homefiles for barkruptcy, doo dah doo dah.

For a headline to work, it has to be 7 syllables.

Good! Excite@Home was a slow, bulky service that filled my computer with useless applications and drove me insane, one hourglass-flip at a time.

I've been using @home for a couple of years, and it's been great. The first thing I did was get get rid of their stupid homepage and bypass their proxy. It's been smooth sailing ever since. Don't worry about losing your cable modem service. As far as I know, every cable company that's using @home intends to continue providing cable modem service one way or another.

And do we think that AT&T will do any better with it?

AT&T long distance = crappy service
AT&T broadband cable = crappy service
AT&T Worldnet = crappy service
AT&T @Home = crappy service

When it rains I loose my cable TV and my internet connection (both AT&T). Their @Home service is an open network that will allow others access your PC (unless you install a firewall). And you can't beat their track record of insulting their customers intelligence. When called for support I talk with some joker at Stream International (at Stream if you can turn on a PC you are a tech) who walks me through a stupid set of diags on my PC, the whole time I'm telling him that the data light is out meaning that no data is coming from AT&T. An average of 35 minute hold time when calling customer service. They billed me for service a month after I had my service turned off...twice (once when I used Worldnet and then again with @home).

What is wrong with pure capitalism..... companies like AT&T

That's true of any service, even dialup. These days, I wouldn't go online without a firewall, no matter what access method I was using.

It's about time this happened, and Excite@Home can suck it.

I signed up as one of their affiliates a while back, through commission junction. I was initially accepted, and went on my merry way finding out many months later they had cancelled my affiliation after like a month without ever telling me.

I bet they did it because I had an Atheism for Kids site, too. biatches.
