Rant x 2
Small rant: stupid post office delivery guy doesn't fill out the little redelivery notification form correctly saying when I can pick up the package, so I wasted a trip to the post office today. I guess I'll have to go get it tomorrow.

Bigger rant: Stupid AT&T Broadband Internet raising rates except if you subscribe to TV service as well. So, they're giving less stuff but charging you more. Yes, that's right, $60.99 for internet if you don't have cable, and $54.01 for internet and basic cable (of course, that's just the average price, since basic cable could be as high as $14.95). I'm going to see if RCN is in my area. This might even be enough for me to get Verizon DSL instead of AT&T Broadband. Fucking AT&T.

Basic Broadcast is $9.12 per month in your town, plus taxes. And RCN isn't there.
Speaking as Someone Who Knows, if you aren't afraid of letting your attbi.com email address go then you can call up Earthlink instead of getting basic cable.

Thanks for the tip. As you can see, I went ahead with Verizon DSL. No crack-showing technician to show up at the house, which is good.

Actually, with Earthlink you wouldn't need a technician either. Same speed as you currently get, $44.95 a month.

Small tip about Verizon DSL: if it ever goes out it'll be out for days and you won't get credited for your time down. And days means at least three days, a week not being particularly uncommon.

Just wanted you to know.
