The cable guy finally showed up. I now have a line going directly from the cable box to the modem outlet. There had better not be any more dropped connections!
To all my friends on the East Coast, I wish you luck and safety during the upcoming storm. Be thankful for all of the tchnology we now have; radar, satellites, buoys. There were lots of shows on t.v. last night about hurricanes. I still can't imagine 8,000-10,000 dead in Galveston in 1900. The people would have had no idea what was about to hit them.
