I was on 9.6k when I had dial-up because these phone lines are still analog pulse rotary. Luckily I finally am able to get broadband in my area. I have 4000/512.

I was just about to say something along those lines. Obviously cut the girl from the budget and suddenly you have a huge surplus. Especially is she's high maintenance.

And nubius help me out in my other threads please, I know you are knowledgeable...please.

What thread is that?

EDIT: If you mean the RAID thread there's a reason I haven't posted....I don't know hehe. I've never set up RAID and it seems like a big PITA to me.
