Why I hate Comcast
Posted by tim in The internet sucks! on March 3, 2008

Last night at midnight, Comcast decided to switch the netblock for this area. After having a 74...* IP address for over a year, they decided it would be neat to switch to a 98...* IP address. What's more, this new IP range is new to everyone around the world. A lot of servers aren't configured to handle it properly, which can cause some nasty problems. Luckily, I haven't found this to be true yet, but I'm not the least bit skeptical.

Oh yeah, I keep getting my connection dropped, too. I have no idea why they're doing it, but I'll just randomly get kicked off everything for a split second. This is going to make watching streaming media a massive pain.

Oh well, they've been giving me all the channels in the basic non-digital cable package as a mistake of their own. I've e-mailed them about it and they said it would be fixed, but it's not. At least I'm not getting billed for it.
