My Comcast internet/phone/TV have been off for almost 5 hours. My phone had a dial tone but I couldn't dial out. My high-speed modem was all lit up like the proverbial Christmas tree and it still wouldn't work. I wired and rewired everything. I turned everything off and shut the power strip off for 10 minutes. I cleared the cache, I deleted the history, I filed all my extraneous files onto a spare hard drive. ARGGGHH. Then at precisely midnight, the TV came on, went off, came on, went off, and now everything is working again. It had to be Comcast resetting or doing maintenance or SOMETHING, but I with they would let their customers know!!! I really should get a cell phone so when my Comcast bundle has problems, I can still call them to report it. But my landline only rings once or twice a week, and I call out less than that, so I really can't justify the expense of a cell phone, lol.
Oh well. I'll be over it all by morning and will try to rewrite the post I was in the middle of when everything went off. Have a good night everyone, if you're still awake that is. I'm grabbing a Sam Adams and calm down!
