Falling off the internet

Qwest will still provide the DSL connection to another ISP, but it costs
more for the same service I am getting now... The main reason for
cancelling my Qwest DSL is to say 'screw you and microsoft too'... The
secondary reason is to get a static IP without paying excessive fees
for a block of 8...

Earthlink & Covad offer a static IP DSL service using PPPoet that I
should be able to make work under FreeBSD. 1.5MB down, 256? up, full
time connection, static IP, $64.95 a month. Seems like a smoking
deal to me... And QWest doesn't get a dime... And everyone I've
talked to about earthlink is reasonablly happy...
