quick RotT programming note

Hey kids and kittens, we’re having some internet problems here at RotT headquarters, in the sense that there isn’t any. Internet, I mean. I’m currently, er, borrowing from a friendly neighbor but past experience tells me that this connection is pretty spotty. I’m going to do what I can to keep things rolling, but if I don’t update about a game or two, well, that’d be why.

The moral of this story is that Comcast, as a collective entity, needs to be taken out back and shot. I could regale you all with stories about the multitude of problems I have had with them, in various locations, but quite frankly that would turn into a blog post so long that no one would want to read it. The latest and most hilarious development involves a lack of technician attention until at least Wednesday, unless we want to go to the nearest service center… which apparently does not have a phone, so we can’t call them and figure out exactly where they are. I could not make this stuff up if I tried.

As I quietly and not-so-quietly seethe at the festering mass of incompetence that is Comcast, I invite you to reflect upon the struggles of Edgar Renteria and his Amazing Disappearing Bat. I hesitate to call it expected, but as someone who also follows the Red Sox, it does look like Edgah’s engaging in an AWFULLY familiar sort of struggle…

  1. Comcast has to be one of the worst customer service companies, EVAR. So much so that the bastardizations of their name that I’ve come to use over the years include, but are not limited to, Comcrap, and my personal favorite, Comca$t.

  2. Well do I recall the AA Comcast travails. This is the problem with a regional monopoly… sigh. Hope your borrowed connection holds. :P

  3. The Comcalypse is upon thee!

  4. Fernando hurt me.

  5. oh, now I’m scaaaaaaaaaaaaared. I’m so excited about getting cable internet at home on Thursday (I’m replacing the dial-up. No, I’m not kidding) but it’s comcast! :( I hope my experience is miraculously though less deservedly more awesome than yours. EEP!

  6. k, well, it’s loads better than dial-up, that’s for sure. It’s great when it’s working. Just be prepared to deal with astounding idiocy if/when things go wrong.
