The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

DSL Hell .... Escaped?

Well, that was anti-climactic. The tech guy came this morning, a little before 9AM. Like most of the techs, he was nice and seemed capable enough to figure out what the problem would be.

I simply let him into the building, showed him the phone line box and then went and started getting ready for work.

At a little before 10 AM he came up to say that everything should be working, there was a problem with crossed lines outside the building and that it had been fixed.

I checked my DSL and everything was working fine again.

Amazinginly, it seems like most every phone tech I deal with is pretty cool (once they actually show up). It's the customer support that you have to call that's a pain in the ass.

Anyway, we'll have to see if it's still working tonight (or if it's any more reliable than it was before).

I just wanted to say that the tech did a good job and hopefully the TiVo's insatiable thirst for downloading new scheduling information will be at least temporarily quenched.

That's because the linemen are unionized.
