Satellite TV/DSL

Good morning! I am closing on a house on Bainbridge Island next week and for the past few years in New England I have gotten spoiled with Comcast for my internet and cable and unfortunately they don't offer it on my part of the street on the Island. The current owners of the house have a satellite dish set up, and after a few phone calls I found out that the dish belongs to the Dish Network and are leaving it there in hopes that we will use their service. Is there anyone in the Seattle area willing to share their opinions about Dish Network vs. Direct TV? I really know little about satellite TV and am curious if you are stuck in a contract?

I'm also stuck getting DSL as well and know that Qwest Telephone offers it for my neighborhood. Anyone have any experience with their services?

Thanks for any feedback, I'm trying to set all this stuff up before moving there next week.

Posting Boards

Can anyone here suggest some good places to post fliers? I'm still looking to sell the fancy-schmancy bass guitar that I posted about not that long ago locally and I'd like to post some for sale signs in areas that have good visibility.
I don't have a (working) staple gun, so telephone poles are definitely out. Basically I'm looking for anything in/on/around the Downtown/Capitol Hill area so I can post these things as I go between my apartment and school... kind of along the lines of the board at Bauhaus, but maybe not quite so crowded.
Any ideas?
