Choked Up

Well, my internet connection is fried. Comcast helped me swap out my cable modem, but that didn't do any good whatsoever. And the soonest they can have a technician here when I can be here, too, is next Monday.

In the meantime, I'm mooching off a neighbor's unsecured network (and getting a blistering 36k speed out of it).

Naturally, blogging might take a bit of a hit over the next few days.

On the plus side, this means I'll be able to devote more time to my fiction. I just finished part II of the next USS Manchester story, and will commence posting them when I get a few more stockpiled.

I think I'm Jonesing already...

Why would anyone still use Comcast after all the negative publicity about their poor service and unreasonable restrictions? Unless it is the only choice for a particular area I guess.

One might use Comcast instead of Qwest, if you are stuck in the rural great NW. Lesser of two evils.

Where I am in the rural NW, neither Comcast nor Qwest nor Verizon nor local telco DSL reaches.

Now that's a shock, Comcast swapped out your modem and it didn't work? Imagine that.

I think that's the only page in the Comcast technician's training book. Anything more significant requires a real technician, which takes days to find.
