Starting Wednesday, at some point, I've been having an odd connection drop-out. Things will be fast and smooth, no problems, and then, BAM, computer can't connect to anything, can't even find DNS. Generally, it returns in a few seconds, maybe a minute at most. Just randomly happens. Annoying as Hell, but not too bad. Mostly annoying when I'm playing CoH, and it causes me to lag.

Every day, I've seen a Comcast truck out here. Figuring they must know about this, I let it go. Today, I finally called them to complain. Sadly, just like the squeak in your car, they can't exactly do anything about it if it doesn't happen when they can detect it. Now, I know of some exposed wires in the area, and according to my apartment manager, they are supposed to come fix them, but doesn't know when. For all I know, that has something to do with this.

Anyway, while talking to the rep, they reset my connection. Connection dropped harder tonight than ever before, twice in a row. I'm not a happy guy. *sigh*
