It’s Comcrapstic!

Yesterday I was going over to GJM’s house to play with some DS networking stuff, so I said “Let me just email you the latest libraries and stuff and I’ll come over.” As I sat waiting, and waiting for only a few megs’ worth of files to send, I realized it would have actually been faster to burn them onto a CD and walk over.

Our Comcast “high-speed internet” has gotten slower and slower as I’ve lived here, but they’re the only cable provider that can (for whatever regional-political-good-ole-boy reasons) serve Medford and we’re too far away from the phone central office for DSL. (So no, we can’t just hop onto the neighbors’ unsecured APs for better service because they’re stuck with Comcast too…)
