I'm sure everyone has seen the 20th Century Fox logo, which appears to
be a huge 3D stone sign with "20th" at the top and the rest of the words
below. In the background there are dome topped buildings with spot
lights shining toward the sky.
I've wondered for years if this is just an artists painting, or does
this actually exist as the buildings with the 3D sign in front?
If it's an actual structure, where is it? (I'd guess Hollywood)!
I googled it, and it's listed as their logo, but nothing seems to
mention if it's an actual structure....
Yep! Included free with my landline. I cant get cellphone out here in
the country, and it would cost me almost $100 a month for satellite tv
with internet. (Cant get JUST the internet). No cable available
either. I dont want satellite tv, I'm happy with my antenna. I'm
really not all that much of an internet user anyhow. I like and need
email. I use a few newsgroups, (this one in particular), and may look
up some reference stuff on the web at times. Other than that, I think
most of the stuff on the internet is time wasting garbage, especially
those social networking sites like facebook.
I spent a lot more time on the internet 10 to 15 years ago. Back them
it was more fun. Now it's just a lot of junk and advertising.
Occasionally I buy something on Ebay, which takes forever on dialup, so
I either just wait and wait, or I use a public computer in town.
Some of those videos on youtube can be fun, but it's like looking for a
needle in a haystack to sort thru the junk. I will try to look at this
one when I go to a public computer, whenever that happens. I just have
to email the URL to myself so I can get to it easily.

I live in a rural area also. Around here most areas have only one
option: dialup, and the are lucky to get a dial-tone and 48k bps. Of
course, the closer to town, the better the situation gets, but even
that is pathetic.
Around here, the public library and many restaurants provide free
WiFi, so a number of people have laptops. When they need a faster
connection, they bring the laptop into town.
The rural areas in the U.S. are in the same situation now with regard
to Internet access, as they were in the 1920s, with electric power
Web based forums are like subscribing to 10 different newspapers
and having to visit 10 different news stands to pickup each one.
This is the "land of the free and home of the brave", not the land of high-tech.
Americans travel to Singapore all the time, showing off their fancy phones, and the Asian locals secretly chuckle: (they traded up from those models three years ago!)
