No post for tonight, since I spent about two hours talking with SBC and trying to get our DSL fixed.
It's finally working, but I need to get some sleep.
Just a quick rant: the first question I asked was "is there any network problems around my area?" and they said no. Two hours later, and talking to a third person, I found out that there has been a network problem that is affecting me so there was nothing I could do to fix the dsl. Nice waste of two hours, but at least the customer service people were really nice.
