Citizen Power Isn't What It's Cracked Up To Be

Hey, remember when I got all mad at Comcast and their robber-like prices and headed over to Qwest for a DSL connection and even a dish if they behaved?

Man, was I naive.

Turns out that Qwest wants us to pay for DSL and some excellent MSN products, but doesn't really consider it important that we be able to use them.

After 10 days, one 1 1/2 hour-long "chat session," one hour-long telephone help-desk-from-the-basement-of-a-Mumbai-brothel session and two trips to our house by actual "technicians," I still do not have the use of this miracle of technology.

I hate them.
