Re: debian-friendly DSL/cable ISP in NYC area?


i heartly agree with noah. i too am a speakeasy customer after my former isp 
(verio) attempted to dump me onto earthlink.net (huh???). anyway, customer 
satisfaction has been nothing short of excellent. i am running two dns 
servers at home with the two ip's furnished by speakeasy. i am in the process 
of registering those with internic (though through apparent incompetance on 
the part of network solutions, it is taking way, way too much time!)
