[#] Oh, for fuck's sake, Comcast.

Yeah, so, just as T1000 finally made a visit to sup/tg/, and, literally, as he asked me if I wanted to play Timevan again, Comcast shit the bed. I have no fucking idea what's going on; the modem seems to think it's still got a connection, but the "cable internet" light is blinking at erratic intervals and the phone was silence, and now giving me a goddamned busy signal. I've never seen this happen before; they must be fixing something or changing a system somewhere and it's causing oddities that most normal people wouldn't notice at just before midnight-thirty, but it's rather disconcerting. The fact that their "lol voip" means I've got no 911 service when they fuck up my phone is actually, legitimately dangerous.

Goddamnit, Comcast. You've improved over the years, but this shit is a little ridiculous. No warning at all before you take out someone's emergency communications? Thanks, I appreciate it.

... picked up the phone again. Still a busy signal, and the phone light on the modem is completely dark at this point, but every other light is on. I've no idea what to do. I can't even unplug the modem for a little while because the damn thing's got a battery life of a few hours, and if that ever runs out I need to call Comcast to get it updated remotely. Great.

So, I don't know when any of you will be seeing this, but I'm sorry. ;_; Also T1K PLEASE COME BACK I LOVE YOU

Edity: Okay, so I'm watching the Venture Bros. on Comcast cable. Pretty much the instant I turned on the television, the cable modem finally went dark and the phone stopped working entirely. Given Cartoon Network's on and the phone and internet are off, I think I can rule out nonpayment as an issue (I was worried I'd missed a bill somewhere). I'll just have to wait it out. And so will you poor bastards. ;_;

Edity Part the Second: It's 2:45 now. Good thing I didn't catch fire and fucking die in the past two hours, Comcast! THANKS A LOT. I APPRECIATE IT.

Hey LL,at least things are up and runnin' again. Is there a possibility for you to change to a different provider? I mean, this isn't the first time the service is down, but then again, this is the first time that you're out of emergency lines, right?

If this is the only way to ensure the return of Timevan, then I shall personally engrave the packets onto stone tablets, and heave them between you and T1K.

This is a test for the hell of it.
