Our February phone bill arrived (26,121 yen). I must stay offline more. Right after I do some research on ADSL providers.

When we moved we had to switch our Internet connection over to the new apartment. Only it wasn't as simple as that. We had to reapply for ADSL service which meant a 4-8 week wait. When the company finally contacted us to arrange installation, we discovered they'd changed their policy and no longer offered the service we needed.

So now we're back to searching for a provider that will sell us what we want--24x7 high-speed 'Net connection that allows us to telnet into our machine at home. Ideally, not at a corporate rate which is about 10 times higher than residential rates. I'm sure there must be a service like this, but the trick is wading through the Japanese sites to find it.
