Comcast appears to be having some serious problems. Long stretches of time when it looks like the internet’s down, or having temporary hang-ups. I can’t watch anything on Youtube or Blip, since it never loads—or if it starts to, it will constantly buffer. A call to customer service seems to think it’s on my end, when I seriously doubt that. Their server keeps dying if anyone tries to check e-mail. (Except for a brief window this morning) Earliest they can bother to check around and see if there’s something messing up is Saturday afternoon, around 11 AM-1 PM. Maybe.

To watch the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, I had to use Download Accelerator Plus, since it kept trying even when the connection dropped out. So I watched a fuzzy quality version of the HD trailer, but at least I was able to see it.

(Yahoo is insane, because it’s been working for me at times, even when Comcast wasn’t, in certain windows of time. So I can keep tagging back in the Genosha logs. Watch the confusion!)
