This is what happened to sandman decals!
 
OK...here is the story.

Back in June AT&T, my internet service provider (for a blankety blank load of money every month), decided I needed a new router.

I wasn't home so my wife let the AT&T guy in.

At the time my router was next to my computer connected with an ethernet cable.

I have streaming TV stuff (Apple TV) and my wife has an I pad so the AT&T guy moved the router to the living room and ran a new DSL wire.

That meant my computer needed wi-fi. My computer doesn't have wi-fi.

I had to find a wi-fi receiver thingy. I found one in an Office Depot in Detroit!!! that got it...

not so fast...windows came up saying a strong wi-fi signal a bazillion BPS's but "will not connect to the internet".

Finally, today after a few months, my computer works.

Oh, BTW. AT&T charged me $99.00 to finally come out and get it working. :mad:

Did I forget to mention AT&T is my one and only internet option. I hate AT&T!

Anyway, I am back. I will start adding more kits to my web ste tomorrow.

Good to have you back, Sandman.
I was wondering what happened.

Glad you are back!

Lack of competition for internet service really sucks.

I have the same problem. All of my art programs are on an old Windows XP computer. When I moved the desk I had to run a cable across the floor.

Sandman, I am sorry to hear of all the trouble you went through.

I join you in hatred of AT&T computer service....and pretty much all the rest of their products too. After running into terrible AT&T data rates for our home service, they stalled us with promises of imminent fixes and upgrades. That never happened. As far as I am concerned, AT&T owes me a big refund for years of service that I paid for that they never provided.

Are you sure that you cannot get ANY other ISP to help you out?

Yes! What he said.

Being in a rural area, my only other alternative is satellite internet.

Very expensive! And if it rains...I assume it works like satellite TV. Or doesn’t work.

ISP choices are lousy when you live out in the middle of the boondocks.

It kills me to say this because Charter rapes us on cable tv charges, but their internet has been awesome since the first day we switched from Bellsouth/ATT. I've always bumped the rev limiter, which was 60 mbps a few years ago and is now 200 mbps. The only limitation is the speed at the other end.

Sorry to hear about all your troubles :( but maybe some good news? :confused:

In the latest Micro-Mark email they showed a printer for running WHITE decals, for a mere $789.95 and white replacement toner cartridges for a mere $350.

The only issue I see is it looks as if all the have done is replace the black toner with white toner. I may be wrong. but I just dropped some money on new screens and can't afford to check it out more. Ultimate Decal Maker's Super Value Package

I just finished some pretty extensive research on that. There are a few unacceptable issues. The main issue is alignment, the paper is not “indexed” , kept in the computer, and needs to be reinserted...I Have tried that a number of times with almost zero success.
