I have a bit of downtime while I wait for my Comcast connection to come back to life. It was out Sunday for an hour or so, which might (or might not) have been a side effect of this major East Coast weekend outage. This morning it went down at about 11am and hasn’t come back yet. Fortunately Verizon’s data connection is strong enough to reach my notebook this afternoon – usually Verizon’s coverage in west Sebastopol is so weak as to be useless for cell phones or computers.
Comcast has been darned reliable – I can’t complain too much today. It’s the first outage in a long time. Well, I can complain. It’s quiet and lonely without email and the slow notebook connection is a poor substitute for 8Mb download speeds.
