PS, Also, hey, I'm sick. I haven't been feeling good since Saturday, and I fear it's probably because I went out every night for the past three weeks. I must've picked up this bug from standing too close to someone sick or just simply that mother nature is trying to shut me down. Either case, I'm taking it easy this next few weeks.
W♥M Radio will be going on hiatus for a while. You see, I've become increasingly unhappy with the Comcast service I'm getting. For the most part Comcast works, but on the days when it's not working, it's very frustrating. For instance, today (Tuesday), it's been going in and out sporadically. It happens on all the holidays (the most recent being on Easter when I was so mad that I couldn't get any work done).
So here's the thing, I pay $60 a month for their "high-speed" service, and I'm gone for twelve hours a day for my day job and going to shows at night, so when I am home, I just expect it to work, you know? And don't tell me it's my modem or my router, I do know how to reset them if it comes to that.
What's my alternative? I can't/won't use DSL. Really? You want me to hook up a phone line first? Really??? No thank you. There's basically no cable-type internet in my area, so my only option will have to be the free wifi coffee shops. I am probably going with the free option with also a $30 unlimited AT&T data plan for the iPad, which is not out until May 7th, so I'll have to wait for this option. That's my plan, I'll probably get rid of Comcast in June or July, we'll see.

Update 5/1/2010 10:14am: Comcast's legendary comcrapstic service apparently reaches to a lot of people. And a lot of people vote for them to ultimately win The Golden Poo Award.� Number Two (get it?) is closely followed by Ticketmaster.
Congratulations Comcast; You're The Worst Company In America!
In a three-day, knock-down, drag-out bout with Ticket "Apollo Creed" Master, the little cable company that could showed just how badly their horrendous service, exorbitant costs, throttled internet and plans to acquire NBC Universal have ticked the Consumerist readers.
