#$&$*%&#$#*#%#@&$#% Comcast!!

Our Comcast cable internet connection has been down for the past two days. Turns out that they stopped Ds automatic billing, and didn't bother to tell him until he was over $150 behind. "They're upgrading their system, it's your responsibility to pay the bill" crap spews out of them.

This is a BIG problem. As in it affects my job. I have to be able to VPN in to the office day or night, and on weekends. It's bad enough that work requires me to use a stupid ass Windows box to do it with (their email, terminal server, and trouble ticket system are Windows only, despite the fact that our product runs on Linux), but now I can't do that.

So I can't get my personal email, and my boss is ticked off to boot. I can't get DSL, because I'm not close enough to the central office to get much more than dial up speeds. Even if I could go with DSL, it would take 3 months to get it installed, and if Comcast finds out, they'll cancel us for 'disloyalty'.

Ah yes, good ole Comcast...I cut them loose myself this last month, as the fees they were charging me for what I was getting were, as "Dr. Evil" has been known to say, "Regoddamndiculous". I'd rather watch a vid, anyway, and what I do watch off of free-air broadcast I get just fine from rabbit ears...fer nuthin'.

Try SBCYahoo DSL?
Most DSL providers say we are too far away also, but SBC is different and we can get DSL from them.

+ is it's relatively cheap
- is remember those commercials about how it 'logs on to you'? It does some obnoxious things like put a Yahoo bar on your IE that causes crashes (REMOVE IT) and it makes your default browser be theirs - turns your e or N icons into spaceships...

Just another possibility you can check out.
