Comcast Chronicles Update – Part Deux

Guess what happened at the stroke of 4:00 p.m. EDT.

No, the septic tank is still intact. But my cable service is out again.

Now the nice folks at Comcast are telling me that it’s because of the drop in temperature in the afternoon that’s causing the nodes to get cold and causing the signal to drop out. Who knew that the entire Comcast network relied on hot nodes? Besides, in South Florida the temperature drops about two degrees between noon and 4:00 p.m. no matter what season it is. I guess what the tech world needs is tougher nodes.

Stay tuned for further developments. (Ha! Get it? “Stay tuned.” Sheesh.)
