    Day 2 of my cable outage

    Got groceries.

    Wife is discussing a marathon of Big Love on DVD.

    Some merciful soul out there may want to come over and put me down.

    Re: Day 2 of my cable outage

    My parents had a Mediacom outage last year.....lasted for about 5 days including a weekend, because Mediacom couldn't send someone out right away. My dad had noticed right when the outage occurred that there were tracks in the snow going up to the cable box in their yard, and a mark where the box cover had been set after it was removed.

    When the Mediacom guy finally got there, the problem was due to a simple error by the third party contractor that came out to disconnect a neighbor's cable. Instead of disconnecting the neighbor's hookup, they disconnected my parents'. He had it fixed in 5 minutes. Suffered through 5 days for a 5 minute correction of an error they made themselves through the third party.
