I'm callin' you out, Comcast

In non-bizarre-musings news, we have a new cable company, and they seem to be in the habit of shutting our service off without warning, either intentionally or accidentally. The old cable company seemed to be able to rectify service problems by fixing a switch, but Comcast apparently keeps their control mechanisms in Toronto, Canada and doesn't own a car, because it takes them 4 days to fix any problems that arise.

This is the third time this year that our cable company has changed, and it has gotten worse every time. Of course, I am assured by wise economic minds that the consolidation of owndership in media companies will ultimately benefit the consumer the most, so I have faith in the perfection of the market that the service will get much, much better any day now.
