My e-connection to the world

See that little thumb drive type unit on the left side of my computer?  That's my personal modem that gives me internet access.  There are no wireless connections here on the island of Holhudhoo, and there are no Internet Cafes either.

So everyone buys their own personal modem for somewheres around $70 or so, and then pays for the minutes when connected to the Internet.

Given the tiny island's rather isolated location way out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Internet signal is extremely weak .... calling for great patience when sending emails, uploading pictures to my blog..... and skype calling for me?  Forget it!
