I was watching the History channel and this guy came on talking about a dam (can't remember which one) and he was a "Failure Expert." How in the world do you become a Failure EXPERT? Sounds like a job or profession created by a person that had a lot of money and gave the job/title to a friend. Also sounds kinda pessimistic to me.

Ok I need some help here. Its about high-speed connections. When it comes to DSL do you have to buy a different modem to use it (I currently have a 56k modem I believe and a bus port)? How do you get DSL? Do they have to install anything in the room/house to make it usable or do you use the phone line (which would be awesome). If it does use the phone line, does it take up the phone line or do you still recieve calls while on?

Hope someone can answer em.

Holy cow since when did I hit 45 posts? <-----

DSL means Digital Subscriber Line.

You do need a DSL modem, as well as special filters on your telephone lines to prevent interference with the DSL service.

With the filters installed on your phone lines you can still receive regular phone calls.

Hope this helps.

Soooo a "special filter" means they have to come "install" it?
