    We call this an "EveryBlock burp". Sometimes it ingests some really old news from the dumpster, gets a little gassy, and burps up the old articles in one big blast. It's best to stand back, open a window, and let everything air out before moving on.

Cable outage

Does anyone have any information about the ComCast cable outage in Edgewater? They're probably talking about it on the news, but since there's no cable.... ;-)

  • Ted

    We have given up on Comcast. RCN is better (so far).

  • My cable went out on me on Superbowl Sunday (of course we were having a snow storm and everyone was blaming it on that) Anyways I called comcast the next day to complain about it and they gave me a $20 credit to my bill. So at lease call them and get a credit!
