does anyone here use Earthlink?

I'm thinking of switching from AOL. Anyone use Earthlink, or know of another good ISP to use?

I've had Earthlink since March and I really like it.

...a highway with no one on it, a treasure just to look upon it...

I've had Earthlink for 4 years (as well as cable) and I have never had a problem with it. Very reliable.

This friggin cable on the other hand is another story.

Yeah, I use Earthlink.

I do recommend getting the DSL version of it, however, if you plan to spend a great deal of time online,if you have a powerful-enough computer, and if you can get that type of service where you live. It is just so much better than dial-up...or AOHold!

I inquired about this oft-mentioned service nigh on 3 months ago, and I am happy to report to you that it doth rock.

On a pleasant evening in the month of September, I arrived at a local trading post in order to barter my goods. It so happened that an advertisement for this very service was pinned to the outside of the old door. It made, I thought, a most outrageous claim: "Yea, let it be known that any persons who wish to obtain a service that provides earthly links to the inter-net, to the very ether itself, will receive freely both a printer and a scanner."
After a moment of hesitation, my curiosity overcame my mistrust for what is obviously the result of dabbling in extra-human affairs, if you catch my meaning, and so I signed up for access to this mysterious service.
As promised, the machines for printing and scanning arrived free of charge, and in a timely manner too; I was in my wagon carting them off from the post within a week. I have not removed the scanning device from its packaging, but I have printed many legible words with the other, although I daren't ask what forces guide the clicks and whirs that eminate from within that smoothe gray shell.

"i knew a lady who came from duluth
bit by a dog with a rabid tooth
she went to her grave just a little too soon
and flew away howlin' on the yellow moon."

Earthlink for 6 years. After a seres of blunders by family members, its working like a charm, just like it did when we first got it as Sprint.

I switched to Earthlink from AOL back in August and I'm seriously considering changing to another ISP! The mail absolutely sucks, I'm so frustrated with it and also I've been having other problems with earthlink!

But anything is better than AOHELL!
