Damn 56K

One of the crappy things about living in the downtown core of a city is that you have the oldest cable lines known to man. My cable modem has been offline 90% for the past six hours now. I'm connecting through a 56k link on my Mac… The only machine in the house with a modem. It's driving me bonkers. I'm a bandwidth addict for chrissake. I need it. I neeeeed it.

I called them and their diagnostics agreed that my line had an unusually high amount of interferance… They're sending someone here on Wednesday to do some sort of noise and hum tests. Not that it'll do any good. What can they say? “Oh, yeah, you're fucked. Move to the suburbs.”

Nice week to quit drinking!

Well, I'm logging off now, I don't think I can handle this speed… Anyone who really needs to contact me can just call I suppose.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
