Don’t read this article if you’re in a calm, relaxed state, and want to remain that way for the next two hours.
I sometimes trick myself into thinking the problem isn’t as bas as it seems. For example, Amy and I were somewhat spoiled in Seattle as we were able to use the *amazing* www.condointernet.net service for our house (100mbps up/down for $60/month).
The joy we felt using that service was easily overshadowed by the sheer terror I felt every time I turned our Comcast box to watch TV, a box which looked like my PowerMac 6100 from 1995 and had an interface like an Atari. It didn’t even play Space Invaders.
