The repairman from Comcast arrived at 11 AM on the dot even with thunderstorms going on in the area, and was an insanely nice guy. He immediately assumed whatever was wrong had to be Comcast's fault, and was genuinely surprised that it turned out to actually be something on our end after all.

Turns out our modem had killed itself in such a way that it looked like it was continuing to work when it was beyond its last legs. So you'd get moments when things worked, blips of nothing, it would be back--looking like Comcast had issues. He said it was the living dead, "a zombie." He gave us a new one, explained everything perfectly, and ventured off to throw our old one out since there is no way that anyone can use it.

He gave us a link to a broadband Speed test for Xfinity/Comcast, so we'll know exactly what servers are dying at any given point and what our speed is, too--just to be nice, apparently. He explained everything in detail, even the type our old one was, what the new one was, and gave a suggestion for what an even faster modem might be if we ever thought of upgrading.

Before he left, due to the massive number of books we have in various spots, he asked Mom for bookstore recommendations for his wife.

Now, even Dad's ancient laptop can use the internet at fast speeds. He said he almost didn't know what to do now that he could watch videos.

According to a couple people Mom just checked with in our area, the Comcast issue isn’t just us. And it’s being done in such a way that everyone affected will believe it’s something wrong on their end, rather than Comcast’s. Another thing I plan to point out when (and if—they said if they don’t bother, we can get a $20 credit, which doesn’t help) they arrive on Saturday.

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!)
