I get my Internet access from Clarknet in Ellicott City, MD. I pay
$25/month for unlimited connect time at 28.8 Kbps or faster to a "shell"
account (command-line and terminal-style access to Internet services)
and up to 6 hours a day of SLIP/PPP connect time (for a graphical
interface and direct-to-my-PC downloads, news feed, etc.). Also
included is up to 5MB of storage on the Clarknet server. If I didn't
want or need the SLIP/PPP access, the shell account by itself would be

Not having to worry about the cost of connect time has (a) freed me from
worries about the monthly bill and (b) allowed me to develop some
bandwidth-wasting habits. I try to remain sensitive to (b), knowing
that some of my friends, for various reasons, still connect at 2400 bps.
