What a tremendous relief!  After just five visits from a very helpful technician and multiple purchases and trials of hardware and software, we finally have internet access in the privacy of our own home.  Not only does this mean that we can utilize all the planned methods of staying connected to family and friends and post photos, it also means we now have access to bank accounts and can even pay our bills; maybe even book a trip and get away for a few days.  This also means that I am now able to make contact with the TWR office in Singapore and beginning planning for my work with them.
