    I think theyre all digital now, so you have to use digital channel numbers. I could be wrong though.

    Aren't they building that new thing out there? Maybe they hit something on accident.

    So they confirm something is wrong and that they are working on it and it pisses you off? What would you have done if they said "well, this is the first we heard of the outage and we will look into it"? Kick a baby? Go postal?

    I guess I should have given some backstory that it's been an ongoing issue for the past month or so that they haven't resolved for my whole neighborhood. If I'm paying over $100 a month for a service and it is incredibly intermittent I think that is enough to get upset about. Especially when I got up early to prepare food and have a house full of people waiting to watch a baseball game.

    #firstworldproblems right? Sorry to get you all up in a tizzy.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Mine works fine, but revkah watched that "Pregnant in Heels" show for an hour, so I'm jealous of your outage.
