So, plan is this: tomorrow, between 2 and 4, someone from Comcast is supposed to come out and "check the line" for problems. Di made sure and told them all that has come before, exactly how annoyed we are, etc. Also told them in no uncertain terms that if they send someone out to fuck around with the computers instead of their own damn hardware, they can kiss it good bye...and I will take great pride in telling him to get back in his truck and drive away.
No fucking more. My afternoon connection varies more and more each day, dropping in and out of sync. Even just sitting here, clicking pic links in a web folder...or even sitting here watching the ping test but doing nothing, it's up and down and up and down, much like a roller coaster. Makes me sick like one, too.
So, they'll come out, and we'll see. If they actually find the problem and fix it (and my, what a big IF that is!), then I'll stay with them, maybe. However, we have an appointment to have DSL service in here on the 5th, so that is ready to rock...if Comcast gets things right, then we'll cancel it, otherwise it's adios Comcast.
Only down side is that I may end up without a 'net connection for a few days. For most of you, that's no big deal. For me, that's like being locked in a box. ;) No matter, it'll be worth it.
