    Slow Connections, Nice Location

    I often mention the slow connection because of my remote location. It seemed time to show a picture of it. I can't figure out how to include it in this thread except by this link.

    http://files.myopera.com/rwayland/files/Home.JPG

    My home is in the upper left quadrant of the photo. In the foreground, the trees are a mix of pine, madrone, bay and redwood. In the background, it is mostly redwood.

    Terrible location for internet, good place to be comfortable. Good place to play the piano unobtrusively, and to write music. Good place for TV, which means I don't have it!

    Nice - you get some and you lose some. I think you're on the plus-side.

    The better half and I are in Agoura CA, west of LA, north of Malibu. We have plenty of infrastructure but also have a back porch that looks on the Santa Monica Mountains. If I can find a picture I'll post it - but it's serene while also being within "striking distance" of the entertainment industry - a happy medium.

    If I had my druthers, I'd be in the hills of western North Carolina.

    Happy New Year.

    Richard -

    What a lovely view! Well worth having no t.v. and "slow connections".
    Music and humor are healthy for the soul.

    No TV!

    You can purchase magazines at the grocery check out as a substitute for your knowledge base.

    Richard,
    Very nice place! It looks a lot like the mountains starting 30km away fom my home. I've always found California very similar to my area. (Much better photos than the ones I could shot are, for example, here: "http://www.unimc.it/unimacerata/Presenta/Provincia/Albero.htm". Don't you feel it familiar?)
    And, yes, connection is slow, if non existing, also here.

    well, of COURSE you have a slow internet connection...
    you have the ethernet cable plugged into the wrong bush!!!
    try that tree just to the left there, it has high speed hinter-net connection.

    Well, that might work, but it wouild be an expense that I don't want to take on now, and I would not make use of any other of the sattelite features. I do think it would be convenient to be able to listen to more music from this site, without that awful download time, but for now, there are other demands on my retired resources.
