No. One of the great things about Sims 2 is that it is offline. Those of us who can't get high speed internet or always-on internet can play.

If I had a buck for every time my phone (landline) or internet (DSL) went down this last month, I'd have about fifty bucks, and the month isn't over yet!

Wouldn't it be nice if you did get paid every time your tech went down? I bet we'd get a lot better service with that policy.

All ideas can be good. Execution is everything; and nothing has to please everyone to be good. Good ideas are a dime a dozen. That's the easy part.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

It would be lovely, but there are only a dozen of us up at this end of the line: they'd just decline to provide service or pay up, whichever worked better. The only reason we have electricity is the Rural Electrification Act.

The Natural Gas company here wanted to put in a pipe: they asked for $26,000 per house to install it, after which we would have to pay for gas every month. We could buy twenty years of propane tank refills (1500 gal, two tanks) at today's prices for just the installation price. The neighbors on wood heat laughed even harder than we did.

And now you understand just why Widespot RFD makes me so happy. Except their mailman can read numbers and always delivers the mail to the right house. Too bad the USPS can't hire sim mailmen!

I love when they play with the dollhouse and do the voices, it's too cute.
