The cable modem in our apartment is dying or something because it keeps crashing every ten minutes or so. Whenever we go away for a week or more, we always come back and find our internet and cable out. Usually this is resolved real quick (call provider, they send a signal to the modem, all's well) but the modem seems to be having trouble. When it conks out, it doesn't want to reboot either. We just have to wait for the signal to return.
Anyway, it'll be three days until they send a tech, so I expect to have very sporadic service until then.
