On the other hand...

I hitched to Ouray today with a couple skiiers from Ophir, a little town outside Telluride. They've got no high-speed internet service up there, and wireless is perfect for distribution there — a bowl-shaped valley, with high points to put antennas on that everyone can see. We talked about the cost of putting in service up there. I know numbers off the top of my head these days, having done this for so long. I know the break-even points, the approximate cost of leased lines.

They're gonna call me some time to talk more. Fun consulting gig!

Okay, this is weird, because I just met two people from Ophir yesterday. They mentioned being from a tiny town near Telluride, and I was like, Hm, I bet I know what it looks like... They were neat people. Apparantly cars don't go to their house and one of them learned to cross country ski because it's the only way to get to their house in the winter.

Yep. Ophir folks are hardy people. Nice too.
