    The house phone is for all the bill collectors/credit card companies and people who I don't want to have 24/7 access to me.

    Yeah, I don't understand why a house phone is still in use.

    However, my parents have a house phone for some odd reason. Luckily, I got 'em skype - which is like $50/year?

    used to have one. But I just put the local police and fire numbers on our cells, all is well.. Unless there is a power outtage and the batteries are dead...Iguess one good reason to have corded housephone.

    Internet mad free where I stay. "Netgear" and "Linksys" are two unsecurred networks I find a lot of places on the laptop.
