Haha, back (I hope)

I am a pessimist, but that is nothing new. I collected
information how much having a telephone costs, the monthly
price is EUR 20 -- plus the money you used for phone calls
of course. I am not using the telephone very much actually,
so there won't be many costs. I calculated that using the
internet half an hour per day (i.e. 15 hrs/mn) would cost
EUR 6.12 with the cheapest tariff around at the moment (I
use a Least Cost Router program that collects prices from
a tariff database each day. The program lists all the
tariffs from least to most expensive, and you can choose
among the freely available ones.). All in all that should
be about EUR 30 to 35 per month, which still rather OK.
Except that the Telekom wants EUR 60 from me just for making
the socket work, but that's the price everyone has to pay
once to get a telephone line (my parents told me).
I'm using a slowish modem right now, but that's still
better than having no internet at all.
