    Welcome to this month's edition of The On Ramp. In past issues, I have taken a moment to discuss our hours of operation and how you can contact us, but I will get to that shortly. First, I would like to take a minute to welcome back a member of the BMI family. Renee Eagon, hired in April of 2004, has returned to our tech staff. Fo... - CONTINUED

    Rewards and Partners
    by Matt Stephens

    full story  | top
    Blue Mountain Internet strives to provide the best of services to our customers. One way we achieve this is to offer you a reward for referring new customers to BMI. This is how it works. Tell your friends and family about the great service you get at BMI. When they sign up for new service we ask them how they heard about us. They tell us that you sent them and presto - you receive a $5 credit on your account. Refer just three people a month and your account for that month is easily paid.

    We also have a program called Partners. This is a group of computer retailers that strive for the same level of customer service that we do. We greatly rely on you, our customer, for names of businesses that you felt placed your needs first. Please tell us which computer businesses meet or exceed your expectations. We want to develop relationships with those businesses. Our partner relationships will give you an extra layer of support when you have problems with your computer. Sort of like your regular doctor (BMI) sending you to a specialist doctor. Please forward your referrals or questions about our partners to:

    by Nathon Oneel

    full story  | top
    Chatting online is very popular these days - meeting new people without having the judgment of appearance. We all do it. It's a place where you are known by your thoughts, personality, and wit. This is as close as you will get to the reader.

    When using IM (instant messaging) the message you type is sent instantly and they receive it a...

  • Talking Dog
    by Katrina Moran

    A guy is driving around and he sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog for Sale." He rings the bell, and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador retriever sitting there. "You talk?" he asks. "Yep," the Lab replies. "So, what's your story?" The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I dis... - CONTINUED

    English is Really Crazy...
    by Katrina Moran

    There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing ring... - CONTINUED
