also routers offer you 'instant-on' access to the internet.

you boot into windows, and you're online...no messing about with dialup connections.

Huh... I boot and I'm already on the net and I only have my cable modem.
And, I don't need a router at the moment. Seriously.

Nobody is telling you that you have to use a router. What people are telling you is that there are benefits to running one. Having more than one computer means you need to use a router ( there are ways around this but it isn't worth the effort) but the benefits are available to you if you use one with only one computer as most are firewall/routers these days and they can be had for very little money which is a small price to pay for the added security.

Man... I configured MSN dialup for a client night before last. 22400 dialup connection speed. I am glad I can't remember those days!

The big HDD poll!
I just want to see what everyone is using and prefers. Personally I use western digital and seagate both. I have actually never had a seagate fail on me but I have had a western digital fail once just tonight so I rely on both as they are both pretty good brands. Brands I would avoid though...
