Are you using Blue Sky?? The diff in billing between the two is that
Blue Sky will not choke you down to 28.8, as HughsNet does when you run
over your daily limit. But, you never get an overage charge either, plus
we have a full blown 3 hours to dnload as much as we please, between 3AM
and 6AM. So, kcron and I be mates. And, as you wrote previous, it does
get the date, day of the week and time of day correct every time. Ric
