Yes I missed two Fridays in a row, no it's not a conspiracy, no I it's not because I'm lazy and hate Fridays.

So here's what happened (warning long news post!)

Two weeks ago on Tuesday I moved in with a couple of my friends, mainly to save a crap load of money, yay. Well things where going good for the first few days, but then Thursday night the cable started going haywire. That meant that phone, tv, and internet were on the fritz. A technician came out to look at the what the problem was, well it turns out we were using more bandwidth than the line to our house could handle. Seems our half dozen digital tv boxes, 12mbit internet, and two digital phone lines was more than the little line could handle. The tech boosted the power as much as he could and schedule another tech to come out and replace the line with a bigger cable so we could have more fun toys.

So, fast forward to Thursday of last week. I come home from work and the everything is out again! Turns out the technician came by, he removed the old small wire, but he never put in a new wire! Instead he just left! With no wire connected to our house. So my new roommate calls up the cable company, and calls again, and again, getting the run around for two days while we have to suffer through life off the net.

Finally Saturday night a tech came by, and replaced the line with a new high powered big boy high bandwidth line, and there was much happiness and rejoicing.

And so now... on with the comic!

But that's what you would say if you were part of the conspiracy...

But of course, I hadn't thought of that. I think you;re onto something here Devin2. Now we need to figure out a way to get Marko to admit it.
