We dumped Comcast. But our new neighbor signed up. The cable from the
street unit to her house has been lying on the grass, above ground, for
I can't wait until they dig the little trench for it.
My wife said one of the techs was walking around our house, trying to
see if we had a dish, apparently.

That's why I avoid Windows, too. My reinstall of XP on a 256Mb laptop
is a joke. My God! What putzware!
Windows is confining!
