I look at it this way, a byte is a byte and it doesn't matter if it is an audio file or a web page. I should be charged for the bandwidth that I use and if that is not enough then I should have the option to purchase more. Being charged for the TYPE of bytes I transmit is completely wrong. It is like Telco is looking at certain types of bandwidth, and wanting to capitalize on the success of that usage by adding yet another tax upon it. This is nothing new. Back in the 80's I had a similar battle against their flawed logic (http://cd.textfiles.com/thegreatunsorted/texts/bbs_legal_info/flaprb.txt). I was a "heavy" bandwidth user (my single bbs line was occupied over 80% of the time) and they found a loophole to abuse by twisting their definition of a business. They saw a difference between teenagers using modems to communicate, to using their voices. In both circumstances the amount of telecom hardware being used was the same.

Going to three monitors is very simple and cheap using the following USB solution: http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=100-U2-UV16-A1&family=USB It works well although I strongly suggest connecting digitally. Currently I am using this device to drive my "primary" desktop monitor and it keeps up with everything ... including very intensive graphics.
