“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Yet again we are having issues with the Comcast connection for the past week - and yet again, it's just "our location" and a technician is coming out to fix it.

For the little gnome lurkers who wander about the net and teh Google for such things - this is the last go; if the problem occurs again we will be switching to FIOS.

I'm tired of paying for a service which is only intermittently provided...

Good luck with FIOS. I have the same problem with AT&T DSL. It takes a dump on me every few days, and several times on those days. I would REALLY like to switch to their uVerse offering (similar to FIOS); however, we are 300 yards too far from the nearest node. Everytime I have a problem with the DSL, I've literally begged them, asked them who I need to bride/blackmail, and threatened them with unspeakable curses to try and get them to put a new uVerse node in...nothing.

OK looks like the issue was equipment related & a fix in place. Hopefully all resolved now - and they sent out a polite, useful technician for once.
