Under pressure from "At Home's" creditors, a federal bankruptcy court judge ruled the network COULD shut down at midnight.
If they do, Cox says its customers are supposed to download Juno software and use a dial-up service until they can be switched to Cox's own high-speed network.
Customers with Macintosh computers will be re-imbursed $21.95 a month for dial-up service since Juno doesn't support Macs.
Cox IS in negotiations now with "At Home" and feels confident the service will not shut off tonight.

((
THE MAN CALLED "THE QUIET BEATLE" IS DEAD.
GEORGE HARRISON WAS THE LEAD GUITARIST OF THE BEATLES, ARGUABLY THE MOST INFLUENTIAL ROCK BAND IN MUSIC HISTORY.
WHILE PAUL MCCARTNEY AND JOHN LENNON WROTE MOST OF THE BAND'S HITS, HARRISON ALSO CONTRIBUTED WELL KNOWN SONGS LIKE "WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS" AND "HERE COMES THE SUN".
HARRISON SAID THE EARLY DAYS WERE HEADY ONES FOR THE FAB FOUR.

(((SOT---Harrison)))

"We really didn't know anything, we just followed our gut feeling, we made it up as we went along. I think that's what you do in life."

HARRISON WAS NEVER AFRAID TO TAKE CHANCES OR EXPERIMENT.
HE INTRODUCED HIS FELLOW BEATLES TO TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION AND INDIAN MUSIC, WHICH WAS EVIDENT IN MANY OF HIS SONGS AND HIS PHILOSOPHY ON LIFE.

(((SOT---Harrison)))

"It's just the body that changes. The soul is there at birth and death. And the only thing that's changed is the bodily condition."

SHORTLY AFTER THE BEATLES BROKE UP IN 1970, HARRISON RELEASED HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM 'ALL THINGS MUST PASS, WHICH INCLUDED THE NUMBER ONE HIT 'MY SWEET LORD'.
HE ALSO STRUCK PLATINUM TWICE WITH A GROUP HE CO-FOUNDED, THE TRAVELING WILBURYS.
IN 1998, HE DISCLOSED HE'D BEEN TREATED FOR THROAT CANCER.
THE FOLLOWING YEAR... AN INTRUDER STABBED HIM SEVERAL TIMES IN HIS BRITISH HOME.
BUT HARRISON REBOUNDED, MIXING NEW TRACKS FOR A REMASTERED VERSION OF ALL THINGS MUST PASS.
HARRISON'S WIFE OLIVIA AND HIS ONLY CHILD, DHANI, (DAH-NEE) WERE AT HIS BEDSIDE WHEN HE DIED.
GEORGE HARRISON WAS 58.))
