Comcast Outage

Anyone else in the area experiencing an outage of their internet and phone lines? I manage at Tatoco - Taco and Torta Company while school is out and at work right now it is not working. Blah. This isn't a very productive post, my apologizes. However, if anyone is in the mood for some tasty tacos or tortas, we ARE open! 949 N. Western Avenue!

  • Mine's been out for over 24 hours. I work from home and have basically lost 2 days of work. Someone from Comcast got me hooked up to a hotspot about an hour ago, so looks like I'll be pulling an all-nighter to catch up on the 2 days of no work. Love me some Comcast. (Where's the sarcasm font when you need it????)

  • My internet went down last night around 9pm (cable TV still functional) and was still down when I left for work this morning. Anyone else have issues or was this just me?

Thanks, Jason

Early morning cabs

What's my best bet for getting a cab around 5am tomorrow? A company where I can call ahead, Uber, or just waiting in a certain area on Chicago ave? I'm headed to the airport and want to avoid any delays.


  • I've ordered cabs through taxi magic for airport rides only to be told 10 min before they're supposed to show up that they're not coming. This has happened multiple times so I only Uber everywhere. Plus you don't have to worry about having cash or fishing through your purse for a credit card (and then get attitude from the cabbie for not using cash). Safe travels and I hope you're going somewhere fun!!

Are you missing a bird!?

There is a very unhappy domestic bird on the light pole at the northeast corner of Western and Augusta.

  • The crying bird flew away. Sorry I don't know what direction. I hope he's headed home.

  • Kristene returning naturalized Chicagoan

    Can you describe? Some one in Logan did recently post losing a bird.

  • It was difficult to see him. He was light grey colored and maybe a cockatoo.

I could be your next cool roommate

I am looking to move Aug 15th or Sept 1st. I work from home, very neat and have a sweet old dog to guard your stuff. Ukrainian Village, West Town or East Humboldt Park preferred.

Com Ed Scam in Uk Vil?

Has anyone else encountered a man going door to door in Uk Vil offering to check your com ed bill?

My wife talked to him yesterday and was a little weirded out by the encounter.

I'm trying to figure out if he was just an awkward salesman hawking newly deregulated energy or if he was up to something slightly more sinister.
