after years with AOL5.Slow, then AOL9.Slow, i finally got the chance to upgrade to High-speed. its through Comcast Cable.


can i now shit-can aol and get rid of it and the cost of AOL ? or do i need to keep that for backup?


and Comcast is currently blocking pop-ups, so on myspace ( i know, ban myspace for the children ) when i click on the forums link on there comcast blocks it from opening the new window. how do i stop this?

Yes, and no.

I'm on myspace, and actually like it but I can't answer this one. I think there's a setting.

You do not need AOL, you'll be paying them for absolutely nothing.

just get a new email address (say... gmail. I can set you up with a free account, just gotta ask(anyone else out there too, btw (just IM me a valid email address))

change all your email accounts to the new one of your choice (even comcast is ok)

and for heavens sake... ditch aol!!!!!
