Broadband over your electrical wiring
CNN Technology article on broadband via electrical wiring. I’ve been watching this technology for a couple years. It’s good to see they are actually running trials in some cities.

I launched the Wieland-Davco web site yesterday. Have a look at it. The site seems to be moving slowly to me. Since it is using fewer files and those files are leaner, I suspect the server is having some issues.
