I Got Nothin.' Nothin' But Speed

Monday, March 2, 2009
I got nothin' today, y'all. Nothin', nothin', nothin'.

Nothin' other than to say that our local Bell affiliate (Qwest Communications - perhaps you've hung their former CEO in effigy) appears to be laying cable in our neighborhood for their new Fiber Optic Internet Service to the Home offer.

Right now we have a cable modem from our local cable provider, which my company pays for since I work from home.

But once this becomes available, I suspect the SmartMan's need for speed (and employee discount) will mean we'll be switching.

20Mbps. I can live with that.

As much as I bitch about AT&T, their high-speed screaming connection is nice to have at home, even if hugely underused by me at the present time.

No, no. I'll instigate much more quickly.

Geek Goddess, hawt installation guys are certainly a bonus, but I just want shit that works.

And Nathan, aren't you working today? Hmm?

Nah! Nobody wants to see street locations for a Spring show with 10" of snow on them.

I and my paltry 8 Mbps burst speed will be jealous.
