WebSkulker saw this at the Consumer Electronics Show last weekend and is thinking about buying their service. They offer the only fixed-price, unlimited, nationwide, wireless email receiving and sending device and service, with some wireless web browsing thrown in. Go to their page and look at the picture of the device. It's like an alphanumeric pager, but a little larger and with a keyboard so you can type messages as well as receive them. The screen can display 8 lines of 25 characters each, along with simple graphics. It has a megabyte of RAM, so it can store a lot of large email messages.
There are several other wireless email solutions available, such as the Palm VII, wireless modems for other Palm models, and other two-way pager devices. But all of those, as far as WebSkulker is aware, charge by usage, and the price is high. If you receive a large amount of email with those other services, you will end up paying hundreds of dollars a month. The goamerica service is $59.95 for unlimited email sending and receiving and web browsing with no roaming fees, so you can use it in most cities across the country. The pager device is $299.
This site contains pointers to hundreds of FAQ's on all kinds of topics. You probably know that "FAQ" stands for "Frequently Asked Questions", and many of these FAQ files are quite comprehensive and give great introductions to their topics. Thanks to Jr. Skulker Batteryman for suggesting this site.
If you are interested in technical details about the Internet, this site also points to information about Internet RFC's (Request for Comment), FYI's (For your Information), STD's (Standards), and BCP's (Best Current Practices).
They describe themselves thusly: "the industry leader in the digital underworld, we are pleased to offer a full range of criminal services and products to our customers. Our willing staff of ethically challenged programmers and network analysts are standing by to serve you at pay phones and IRC channels around the world. We look forward to doing business with you."
ignore their criminal claims, the site and their "products"
are all in fun. Go to the second link, scroll down about
halfway, and look at all the scary links and buttons. WebSkulker
has clicked on most of them and they don't do any permanent harm, so
don't be too afraid to try them. The worst that can happen is
that you might have to reboot to get out of something.
Evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers. However, all the league records were unfortunately destroyed in a fire. Thus we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.
