Gaaagh! It’s good to be back!
The internet node in my area – my STREET, specifically, cooked out about two weeks ago. Time Warner was “working on the issue”. All of 10th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues had no internet. And since it’s New York (which apparently is some tiny backwater town with limited service) I had the choice of using Time Warner for my internet or… nothing. NOTHING! How the hell does that work? With no competition even AVAILABLE, when I call and say “I’ll leave!” they say “where else are you going to go? There’s nobody else in your area. You’re stuck with our crappy service” you’re kind of stuck.
Anyhow, it’s back on now. I gotta update this ghost-town of a blog.
