Very cool indeed. My house is 117 feet from the hub, and I was doing
something very much like that until the SDSL provider ceased to exist. The
really neat part was the letter I received via postal mail around a week
after all connectivity was gone.

The letter stated that I might be experiencing some "problems" in the near
future. If anyone knows of a reliable SDSL provider in southern
California, please let me know.
