Yeeeaaaay, Janina! You Go, Girl! Stick it to 'em. I
have half a mind to complain to the FCC myself about the
three-times-a-week U.S. Postal letters from Verizon, urging
me to avail myself of the delights of FIOS. They are, all
by themselves, keeping the P.O. in business.
Also: if you are still moving where you told me that you
were going, be aware that that community has a very active
computer association of some kind, and you may be able to
organize them so as to get the FIOS you want.
Good luck, and best wishes!
