Out on the Limb

Computer Use in the RV

Friday, June 10, 2005

I'm so tired of the slow dial-up internet connection here at home. We have already decided that the Mobile DataStorm Satellite receiver is for us, in part due to the excellent service Tioga and George receive.

However, I was concerned that internet use would still be slow. But our Resident Nerd (RN) at work assured me that to get away from dial-up, all that is needed is a 2-way satellite receiver. DataStorm fits that requirement. There is plenty more information from MotoSAT (the makers of DataStorm I think) . I have not sorted through our options yet.

Bottom line: You can get a satellite which requires dial OUT, with info coming back to you via satellite...but speed will be sacrificed. 2-way satellite gives us the speed we are looking for, and frees us from having to use our cell phones to connect.

I'm also looking forward to being a part of the DataStorm Users Group.

Later, folks.

Getting away in a RV is fun. I only have a pop-up, which is a little more like camping, but its cheaper for us, and besides, I don't have any place to park an RV.

As far as computers go however, I think they are essential for Rv'ing, as we are continually searching for places on the internet, and also that about the only way to check on and make reservations. I also use my laptop to download and look at digital pictures....

Anyway - Have fun
