I met my wife on an AOL chat room about 11 years ago. I didn't use a service or anything just BS'ing in a room, hit it off. She came from FL to meet me in PA. she ended up staying an extra 3 days. A week after getting home she called and asked if id drop everything and move down to FL. at the time I was like OK I have nothing holding me back up here and left with only what could fit into my suitcases. Computer tower came with too.
I just moved to a place with Fios from Comcast, love the speed. We need it with all the devices that connect to the internet. And I'm a geek (IT Tech) that needs to be able to VNC "in". We also have I think 9-10 devices online. Its not about how fast the lines are its about the width of the lines.
Awhile back I heard a song called "Tranquilized" on the radio. Fell in love with it. Found out the band name (Ekotren) and tried to buy it locally, I couldn't find it. I got an illegal copy. Listened to it everyday for almost a year. I came to find out it was a semi-local band located 2 hours from my house. My birthday I went and seen them live, showed up 4 hours early. I hung out with them told them what I've done, and said "I owe you guys, Thank You!" I bought the album and a shirt for my wife as she fell in love with them too. Since then we've seen them 4-5 times always buying merch from them. The last show was rained out and they personally invited us to another location. We hung out all night at the merch stand and even helped them get ready for there set. We are fans for life because of an illegal download. (I have stopped all illegal downloading and now just watch youtube, hulu, xfinity, amazon prime, redbox, gamefly.) I have my band don't need another.
