Hmm...What is the Problem?

POST #    535

The other night, I ordered a cable modem for my aunt's apartment, but got the self-install kit since I didn't want to wait for an appointment. So after stopping at Radio Shack for some supplies, I come home to install it. First step, cut cable, TV goes silent. It's a shame, but the right step. Next step, strip some cable. Done. I then try to affix the coax connectors. Those donít actually fit, minor problem. By the time I go downstairs to my parent's for dinner, everything is working. It doesn't look nice, but it works. When I get back, the Internet connection still works, but the cable box seems to have reverted to basic service. Strange. It's okay for now, but I will have to address it at some point.

On the plus side, Jacques Torres is making some sort of pumpkin Halloween dessert.
