A sales rep came a knocking today. Sunday of all days. They seem to be getting pretty aggressive. Just a week ago I had a message on the machine.
Probably lost a lot of business with the poor economy and competition from the Sat providers. They actually seem somewhat desperate.

I told her I had no intentions of changing anything. I did say I was happy with Roadrunner.

I've been getting twice-weekly mailings from the local joke of a cable co (Cable One). If they ever come in person I'm going to use the opportunity to vent my spleen.
