I haven't heard much about Virgin with regards to Internet service. In general, the company is well-known for doing things better and cheaper than the competition. I don't know what the exchange rate is but 25 pounds sounds pretty good. I've heard both good and bad about BT, and people seem to be happy with Blueyonder. Whichever one you pick, if you don't like it you can always switch.

How fast is the connection you would get for 24.99?


With NTL, which I dont know if it is available in your area, we have 24.99 for a 600k connection, and that is the whole cost per month, no extra fee for line rental or whatever.


Of course added onto any cost is the one-time installation, but that comes with every company.

You can do it yourself I think, just most people wouldn't know how to and it's all part of the service. Or maybe they won't let you do it incase you break it What ever!

We installed ours ourselves. I didn't feel much like paying a $100 US just for them to put in a few wires and stuff and install it on the computer.

Some things you do, some things you dont. Anything from Amazon usually gets here on the day of release, the day before, or the day after. Other things though often dont.

I played it on GameCube for a few minutes. Some of the missions are hard but I wasn't playing at level 1 so it's prolly just me. Pretty cool game.

this is what its about

There are strange happenings in Springfield. People are missing, very mysterious crop circles are appearing, and hidden cameras are being exposed. When Homer notices a black van with a satellite dish parked outside the Simpsons house, he decides to investigate further into these odd events. What he reveals could be the biggest mystery to rock Springfield since Who Shot Mr. Burns?
The Simpsons Hit & Run promises a hilarious mission based driving game with exciting out-of-the-car platform gameplay, the signature satire of The Simpsons, and the interactive world of Springfield

and you can play as either: Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, Apu there the main charactors and i think there are sub charactors as well like playing as Skinner

RoadRage whats that consol for because i was getting the name mixed i thought hit and run was called road rage at first doh
