What *Could* Possibly…well, you know the rest.

I have a project today.

Life savvy-slash-reasonably intelligent people-slash-those armed capably enough to cope in the world might think of this as more of a cute “project”.

But not me.

I’m installing a new modem/router.

Witness my white whale

Isn’t that cute? It’s called a surfboard.

I’m appropriately terrified.

I may as well be changing Angela’s oil on my own. I’m having flashbacks to the lawn mower engine I disassembled in my Junior High Shop class and gave up putting back together. I just stuffed it into a locker and waited out the end of the school year. Thankfully, my dad got promoted at work and relocated the family half a country away.

It’s the Shop Class Dropout Relocation Program.

So, yeah. This is more daunting than cute for me.

But after paying for Comcast’s modem/router at least 5x over in their monthly equipment rental fees, I’m bound and determined to make this switch and then fling their equipment at their building as I whiz by in Angela.

So, wish me luck. If you never hear from me again, don’t be too surprised.

Oh, gawd…it just occurred to me: I’m going to have to come up with a pithy new wifi name. Farewell, YouGoGlennCoco.

  1. I quit paying companies for their devices a while back. When Verizon/Fios sold out, failed to cut me deal to stay I left. I asked what to do with the old stuff that was Verizon branded. “We don’t want it back.” WTF? Shit was worth 40some bucks a month for 3 of them. Hold on, I can buy a 4K fire stick for a month’ rent, high speed Internet only, save a buck and a half a month? Not use some throttled back modem with less range than a fart?
    Good man. Give them their modem and the finger.

    1. Haha…well, partial credit? I’ve got WiFi streaming for music and TV – but for whatever reason, no internet. I’ve been putting off calling Comcast about that for 2 days. Maybe tomorrow?
