Some good news for a change

A guy from Rogers spent all of yesterday rebuilding the cable box right over my front door, which I guess services the entire building. Apparently they were getting tons of complaints (from us included) about the quality of service — drop-outs and bandwidth not being what it was promised — and when he looked at the box, he discovered that the whole thing was one big rotted rusted mess. We pay for “up to 75mbps” and have been lucky to get half that, with it being in single digits many days, if we can connect at all. But today after the repair, things are looking up:

That’s much better. Hopefully it stays like that. I have gotten excited about good numbers before, only to be disappointed a few days later.

Other than that, I feel pretty crummy because I didn’t get as much sleep as I should of due to my neighbors screaming inconsolably at each other for two and a half hours starting at 4AM, but I’ve cast a pile of jewelry that I want to work on now, and I’m also working on a new clock that I expect I’ll post in a couple days.

    It struck me when you mentioned what time your neighbors were up, and reminded me of this funny TED video about the same subject (4am that is). I thought you might enjoy it.

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