    Hello everyone in BMI land! Is summer really over?" According to the calendar it is, and it's getting colder at night so I guess it is. Do you know what that means? (Yes, we're all getting older, but that's not really what I had in mind.) I was thinking that it means more of you will be spending less time outdoors, and more time on the computer.

    It seems that around this time of the year people start wondering how to optimize their online time.

    Well, the answer to that question can come in a couple of different forms. First of all, the obvious. DSL. DSL is a form of broadband internet that allows you to surf the net at up to 25 times the speed of your dial up account. I know, it sounds great doesn't it? The bad news is not everyone's phone line qualifies for it. But does yours? Call our office and we'll run a quick test on your line to find out. It's a free check, so what are you waiting for? And the cost has never been lower. For a 256k connection speed (5-10 times faster than dialup) it's only $29.95 per month!

    "But what if DSL is not an option for me?" We understand completely that DSL is not an option for everyone. Maybe you don't want to pay more; you just want the pages to load a little faster. BMI offers a turbo program that will enable your computer to open web sites up to 7 times faster.

    "WOW! 7 times? How is that possible?" Well, the turbo is a small program that you load on your computer and it goes out and gets the information from the website in a much more streamlined fashion than a typical browser. It brings the whole website in at once rather than going back and forth with smaller packets.

    The cost of the turbo program is just as good. The first month is free! If you like it, keep it for only $5 a month. If you don't like it, cancel it. We don't want you to have any type of service you don't like. But for free, there is no reason not to try it. I have used it at home myself, and it really does work well.

    So I'll be expecting to hear from each of you out there that don't have it. Of course if you all call at once, I'll have to hire some extra people. Have a great month everyone, and enjoy the last few nice days before Old Man Winter knocks on your doors.

    One more thing and I'll let you get back to your busy day. If you have a question, please feel free to send it to me. If I can find the answer, I'll share it with everyone. Just a guess, but you are probably not the only one that has that question. Wouldn't it be nice to share with everyone?
