[random][geek] I can stop any time I want

For the first twenty-four hours I was literally insane and paranoid as many addicts are in severe withdrawal. -- William S. Burroughs, "Deposition: Testimony Concerning a Sickness" Somehow, Comcast really fscked our account up this weekend... Ya go and return an old cable modem, and what happens? Their system starts blocking our MAC addresses. Go figure. I think this has happened almost every time they've updated our account. At any rate, we appear to be connected again. As soon as the cold sweat and shaking stops, normal posting - whatever that is - will resume.

Personally...DSL...the only way to fly. (But then I hate, Hate, HATE Comcast, the only cable provider here in Babylon by the Bay.)

I miss our ISDN line - but no one in our household has an employer willing to pick up that tab anymore. Generally, the high-speed data options in Seattle suck raw moose since almost everyone is a reseller for Qwest's services.

For varying values of 'service'.
