Today the 'ol cable modem went down for a good hour and a half. I was not pleased. In fact, I was so not pleased that I began hacking. When I was done, I had a Python script that logs network downtime. At the end of every month, I shall enjoy demanding a corresponding credit on my bill. If I'm paying $45/mo, I better darn well get the 24/7 access that I'm paying for.

Update 02/20/02: It's been 10 days now, and the net connection has been rock solid. Strangely, I find myself a bit disappointed...
