Am connecting now on a friend’s laptop, off a weak WiFi signal stolen from a neighbor’s router. Time Warner Cable’s left helping hand doesn’t know what its right helping hand is doing – and seems to possess and to be giving out conflicting info on whether it’s an area problem, probably related to heavy rain, or just an individual connection problem, possibly related to sins committed during a previous life. The truth is that it’s at a minimum a neighborhood problem, since at least two of my neighbors are affected. Most cruelly, even though we have some TV – CNN, ESPN, ABC, FOX down; CBS up; NBC breaking up and weird, etc. – at this point it looks unlikely that we’ll have the Lakers-Heat in HD on Xmas. I may actually have to go to someone’s house or a sports bar… and socialize… in 3-D…
Ecch. Oh well- at least it wasn’t a mudslide wiping out my family’s house and possessions and killing my dog, as happened not too far a drive from here.
Don’t currently expect things back to normal until the 27th at earliest – unless the left hand fixes the “node” before the right hand arrives for the scheduled service appointment.
Can’t J give you the address of a nearby Central American illegal immigrant family living off of welfare payments and proceeds from their violent crime sprees, so that you may watch the game on a stolen giant-screen tv while you sip the traditional food-stamp purchased malt liquor and rum, suck down that good Californian weed/crack combo, and fire off Texas-made full auto weaponry when your boyz throw down on the Heat?
