As y'all can probably tell my internet is back on. Already. They almost always say it'll be on right away and then it almost always takes at least a day for them to actually turn it on. But this time it actually did come on right away.
ETA: And then it went off again and came back on again. I'm starting to think it might be Cox in general that's fucking up. I am working up back-up plans in case it dies again and doesn't come back up. If I have enough money I will head to Kinko's once my Big Bang is done and send it off. If I don't have enough money... I will try as hard as I can to figure something out.
