pithy servers

Internet has been such a pain lately. All week it's been spotty, either I can't connect to my ISP's DNS, or can't connect at all, so finally I got online today and had nothing for like a half hour so I called customer service. I couldn't ever get the guy to tell me if he did anything, but it started working again. Then an hour later, gone again. It kept doing the same thing... it'd slow down, so I'd ping a server, and have like 40% packet loss. Then 80%. Then 100%. So I called the company back, they did some pinging and noticed all the loss and said they'd send someone out to check things out.

Guess what? As soon as I hung up, I'm back online. Crap! Reminds me of when I was a kid, I used to get these awful coughs, but when mom took me to the doctor I wouldn't cough at all. Amazing.

So I'm tempted to call the cable company and tell them life is okay, don't send anyone out, but I've heard that's a bad thing to do. So I'll just wait here until 1:00. Maybe it's just a weak signal again? Who knows.

The guy I talked to the second time kept addressing me as "Mrs. so-and-so", too. What, do I sound like I'm married? pleh.
