This is a just a note from happy ol' me saying I'm back in the land of the connected! The cable modem has been successfully installed, the wireless hooked up, and the annoying files and settings hoisted upon my computer by the Comcast cable modem installation program have been deleted. While it's been quite nice to be pretty much disconnected for the past two weeks, it will also be nice to be able to connect again when I want. Yay!
