Tying up a few loose ends

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

I’m back today from a brief vacation — I took Monday and Tuesday off. Sarah and I were supposed to go back down to North Carolina this week (it’s her spring break) but after getting engaged and being overwhelmed with things to do and expenses relating to that, we decided to call off our trip. Besides, this way maybe we can find a way to take a honeymoon of some kind. I’m mostly not going to write about our vacation because we didn’t do very much, overall. I didn’t even get to ride very much, just one brief ride around a neighborhood on Saturday and a 24-mile ride on Monday. We did hike yesterday at Yellowwood State Forest, doing the Jackson Creek Trail and part of the Lake Trail. Later, we got a flat tire; fortunately, it held air when I reinflated it.

I was having some networking problems last week and thought it was due to my Comcast cable modem connection. Comcast bought my ISP and things haven’t been working right since then. However, I replaced my router and things started working again. So I guess it was just a coincidence, but it seems a little weird that my router started having problems right when my connection changed to a Comcast one. Coincidence or conspiracy? We’ll never know. Another weird thing happened and the router that I bought kept resetting itself randomly. I had to take it back and get a different one. I seem to be having a string of bad luck.

Then yesterday we received a notice from Comcast saying our rates are going up. It looks like they’ll only increase by a few dollars per month, but I’m not thrilled. Our first week as Comcast customers has not been good.

    Our fresh, new Comcast service was out Tuesday AM for several hours.

    COMCAST = EVIL … look it up.
