After 4 months of calling, complaining, calling, begging, calling, ranting, and then calling again — Charter finally sent out a technician that agreed to do what I asked the original guys in March to do. That is, to replace the coax cable from the road to my house. The connector at the house sat exposed to the elements for years when we had satellite, and were badly corroded. Sure, they clipped off the end and started “fresh”, but my suspicion was that water had damaged the cable itself.
According to the signal loss in the cable, I was right. I’m sure my head will soon expand to the point I can’t get in the door. Anyway, the new cable is installed, and my Internet connection hasn’t gone offline for over 5 hours. I’m guardedly optimistic. 🙂
So, now with the Internet connection going at (hopefully) full tilt, maybe I’ll get around to like posting and stuff. Ya know?
