Be Gone!

I decided this morning to cancel my service with Time Warner Cable and not replace it with anything.

Yes, it will be annoying to not be in control of my own internet connection, but I will have a connection; one of my neighbors leave his/her wireless network unencrypted and labled "For my building" so I won't have to steal it either.

I will save money and headaches by not having to deal with Time Warner. AND because I won't have advanced television, I will have a lot of time to do other things.

Like blog. Woo!

Or go to Union Square for hot cider and gingersnaps.

The antenna to my television will give me some basic television options, though, so it's not like I'll be completely out of the loop. And I could re-subscribe to Netflix if I am really hurting for some televisual stimulation.

So, anyway. Time Warner and I broke up. I think I'm more angry about the whole thing than they are, but we'll both survive some how.

What about Project Runway!! How will we maintain our tradition if you have to start watching it from a club or someone else's house. I want my objection noted, sir!

Duly noted.

You could try RCN as an alternative to Time Warner Cable. I've never used them, so I don't know what they're like... they may not even be in your building, but you can give it a try.

A sympathetic coworkers sent me to them as well. Unfortunately, the only service they seem to offer in my area is Dial-up internet.

It would be like my old house in Georgia! Ahhh, memories!
