Network Access Solutions Files For Chapter 11 Protection
Topic: Technology 1:26 am EDT, Jun  7, 2002

WASHINGTON -- Network Access Solutions Corp. (NASC) and affiliate NASOP
Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors.

The filing, made late Tuesday in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington , Del., listed assets of $58.2 million and
debts of $84.9 million. Under Chapter 11, companies can continue to operate, and try to work out their financial
problems under a court's watch.

The Herndon, Va., company, provides telecommunications services and Internet access to business customers. As
of March 31 , it offered communications services in nine markets and had 24,000 lines in service.

The company went public in June 1999 at $12 a share. Its shares last changed hands at two cents each.

Why Nader's Microsoft plan is flawed

Let me get this straight. Ralph Nader (news - web sites) -- former presidential candidate (and close friend of Al Gore (news - web sites)), consumer crusader and political activist -- believes the way to bring Bill Gates (news - web sites) to his knees is for President Bush (news - web sites), in the guise of the Office of Management and Budget, to mandate that the government limit its purchases of Microsoft products.

In other words, spread the dollars around to Apple, IBM, Corel, Linux (news - web sites) firms and other manufacturers to encourage competition and get better pricing. Or as Nader himself told Reuters, "The only consumer in North America who can break up the Microsoft monopoly simply through purchasing strategies is the U.S. government."

"Back in the day, there were boards. Bulletin Board Systems. BBS's. No Net, no Web, no cyberspace, nothing. Just boards, and their ugly stepchildren, D-Dials. All strung together with phone lines, hand-rolled software, and 8-bit computers. No backbone, no hubs, no routers, no DNS tables. Just one computer picking up the phone, calling another, and having a little chat. " Technology | When 300 baud was the bomb
