Thanks aem...I appreciate the kind thoughts...

I have the AV covered with Avast...it has been a godsend with my Vista 64 bit machine so it was the first thing I put on the Windows 7 box. I was using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit beta early on, but had to let it go as I just didn't have the "at home" time to get everything working with my home PC's (I've got boxes running everything from Win98SE to 7, including a NT4 print server!) Making everything talk to each other in the ealry dayz was not all that easy...

The problem is that Verizon (they are one of the biggest Telco companies here in the states...especially in my area of SoCal (Southern California)) has most of the HotSpots they sponser secured...nothing much is open in the area. I am really thinking of using my son's account at the university, but it really isn't a cool thing to do...

I just wish I could take the laptop up myself and try...my wife is anything but stupid, but computers are really not her thing (she and I used to build the IC chips in these things for a living...LOL)

Thanks again Mate!!
