Share? What's that? It appears to be an English word. I will have to get my 
dictionary out and look it up.

I am too far out of town for DSL. Am looking at the service offered by a 
local wireless ISP. There is also a new start-up that is rumored to be 
offering wireless service once they open their doors. If neither of these 
options work out I can co-locate my hardware with a local broadband 
provider for $150 per month. um, maybe I will go for the co-lo regardless.
