Cable Modem Downtime
The fine folks at Optimum Online had me outta commission for more than 24 perceived hours (not sure how long the outage lasted, but my IP address changed so I couldn't remotely access my computer and the Cable modem needed a reboot).
It made me realize a few things:
1. How slow dialup is these days (considering the best I can get from home is about 26kbps.)
2. How much I take my cable modem service for granted.
3. How I don't even keep a modem connected to my PC anymore and how it's a pain to wire one in.
4. How I wish wireless broadband would come and take the wires away.
