Blackbox

I just read on a usenet group that Blackbox is closing up shop. Apparently, their experience as a DSL reseller has just been abysmal, thanks to Southwestern Bell, and it's been enough to kill the company.

When I moved to Houston in the Spring of 1995, Blackbox was one of the few ISPs offering a dialup PPP account with true unix shell access, at a very good price (hard to find at the time for the price I got). They were my first ISP here, and truly an ISP for geeks (that's meant as a compliment). It's too bad they couldn't make it any longer. They ran a good shop.
