Default Another quantum leap forward in personal technology

Today I obsconded a Dell laptop for the low, low price of $15. All of the new computer equipment where I work is leased and this is the last of the company owned laptops. Not a bad unit for the price. It came with an ethernet card but not the cable to connect to my DSL modem. I went to a local mom & pop computer store and the guy essentially said that due to the age of the card, it would not be easy to obtain. He suggested a wireless router and compatible PC card and now I'm toes-up on the recliner browsing the 'net.

Ahhh technology!
