I would take a moment to browse these forums and look for yourself. Network Vision is in full swing in markets all across the country, including almost all of Florida. Trying reading the Tampa thread in the Markets forum, I think you will find some information there.

I've been following the thread since it started and nothing, plus I can't become a sponsor my mom won't let me use her card to donate I'm 15

 

What do you mean "nothing?" That's one of the most active threads on this site! Jam packed full of info about the Tampa market, even without sponsor stuff.

I'm not that old but I do remember when AOL charged by the minute (Also when there was no online and my 80286 was top of the line with its 40 meg hard drive and 1 meg ram)

Thanks. Sometimes I forget that compared to a lot of these folks, that I'm old. I'm happy to have reminders that I'm not alone. I need to get an old geezer emoticon.

In Vinita there was no online either despite my best efforts. My first computer was a 386 in a Pentium II world and needed an expensive external modem that I as a little kid had no way to justify to my parents. My first computer with internet access was an IBM with a 486DX2 and 4mb of RAM. it was a huge leap forward for me with its CD-ROM drive! I have been a tech enthusiast since age 4 and its all because my parents deprived me for so long (all my friends had much newer machines with internet access).

I will remember this ISP I never had forever (repeated attempts to get it failed for years)

I was top dog when I got my 300 baud with 450 turbo modem!

 

The world changed for me with just a few numbers. 1:3807 and my app I wrote on my 286 in high school can still be found around the internet today.

What app was that? The most programing I did was on Basic, tricks on my sister when she would try and sneak into my room to play jeopardy on my Apple IIe.

Its much worse when you can remember connecting to single-line BBS's via a 300 baud modem via whatever home computer-in-a-box you were fortunate enough to afford (Commie 64 in my case, though that wasn't even my first, I had a TRS-80 CoCo II for my first, but never any modem for that one) and watching a single screen line per 10-15 seconds scroll across everytime you did something new. Or that you not only know of Q-Link being the Father of later-birthed AOL, but can quote the original company name off the top of your head (Quantum Computer Services) and actually give a little history due to paying $1000+ bills for the service, back in the heady pioneer days of per-hour charges before the age of enlightenment whence came the commercialization of, and unlimited-per-month access fees to, Al Gore's grand invention.

 

And the sad thing is, there are people here I know that can easily one-up me and put me to shame on the above.

 

Bottom line, no matter how some of the younglings make you feel Robert, don't even think you can start kidding yourself that you're old yet....you've probably got a good 10-15 years bare minimum yet before anyone who actually is old would even waste a nanosecond seriously considering the notion before they started to choke on their applesauce laughing hysterically.

And I see someone else beat me to the 300 baud modem bit before my post showed up, ha!

When i wasnt playing Sword of Fargoal or Mule I was keeping the phone line busy.

 

Play the C64 emus on my Note2 with a wii controller all the time. Bet the game devs would have never guessed their games would still be played 30 years later on such a device.

 

Time to go on over to the off topic thread...

Some of my favorite C64 games were things like Lords of Conquest (Risk-lite before Risk existed in a sense), 7 Cities of Gold, Hacker, Raid on Bungeling Bay, the Ghostbusters game, and I played the original AD&D SSI Gold Box Pool of Radience (plus sequels) on the C64 as well.

MULE! Best game of all time. Don't laugh but my first computer was a Coleco Adam(remember that?). I redeemed myself by buying an Atari 130XE as my follow up.

15... Was Aug 1998. I had better thing to do than the computer, plus there was Nintendo. I think we just Got the N64 about then. 16, its was all about my truck and it was about then my love for electronics started. I had computer classes in School with access to the internet. So I would say 17 years old before I was truly at it on the Web. Almost 13 years ago. 400Kbps was so awesome!

Our first real computer at home was a Radio Shack TRS80 Model III. I remember my dad buying a 30MB hard driver for around $3,000 so he could write a program to keep track of the prescriptions at his drug store.

 

We also had an Atari 400 with that AWFUL keyboard that my dad and I ended up building a real keyboard for, and then later an Atari 800.

I remember taking all my graduation money and buying a CTX from best buy. That thing should have been named POS. The good thing about it was that I bought the warranty and after a few fixes, they gave me my purchase price back on a gift card. At that point, I bought an IBM. That thing was great. Couple that with my T1 line in the dorm room... Napster was big at the time... Life was good

My first computer was an IBM PS/1 that my mom bought. I used to go in the spare room and watch Marbles until I fell asleep. It was the greatest thing. Then my grandparents bought my mom a Macintosh Performa 6116CD. Before computers I had my Nintendo and my Sega Genesis. My mom and I used to team up on Mario 3 when I wasn't in school. Those were the days, lol.

I was in my 30's when I got my my first PC -- an IBM XT w/Hayes modem. So cool, logging into BBS's and CompuServe. My favorite programs were WordPerfect, dBase, Ventura Publisher, and some-name-I-can't-remember accounting software.

 

Whenever I feel too old, I snap out of it by thinking of Aldo celebrating his 85th birthday:

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
