Roger's paygo - $100/yr card. $8.33/month.
- no I don't use it much. I refuse to do data, let alone refuse to do 
e-mail on phone. Given wi-fi on my android, I don't miss it, either. Let 
alone osmand means even for gps/mapping I'm data independent.

- that $8.33 is even inclusive of an unfortunately necessary $3/month 
txt plan!


I used to have static ip, been dynamic (no-ip) for forever. Don't miss 
the static ip. Chas, you're still finding it useful?


- I don't even use the TV weather network any more. The web site, 
judicious links, is way more current, and only when I care to look. 
Favourite link, combined with an adblocker: 
http://www.theweathernetwork.com/hourly-weather-forecast/canada/ontario/waterloo#table-container-hourly


Many can argue no phone need for anything but cell. Not sure I can argue 
with that. Let alone if I ever get busy and finally migrate to voip.ms - 
call control, anyone?

I watch little TV these days, except for news, and even then CKCO is 
available via digital adapter. Still curious about the whole internet TV 
'thing'. Let alone hulu via vpn. Will be sad when I move, still on basic 
cable, with no plans to change ... cold, dead, hands.

FWIW. YMMV.
