Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

At home

Still waiting for the cable guy.

He called about half an hour after the two hour appointment window ended to let me know he'd be here in fifteen minutes. Forty five minutes later he called from an intersection I'd never heard of asking for directions. (The street I live on has several different segments, he's on another one on the wrong side of Snelling.)

Finished the Malibu missions (why have a mission as tough as "The Driver" which ends up being pointless?). Vice City has been crashing some recently when I've been using the Hunter for Vigilante missions. Frustrating.

So, currently just waiting...
Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

Free at last

The cable guy finally showed up around 1pm and didn't realize he was supposed to install digital cable in addition to the cable modem. Getting the cable modem up and running required a couple calls to tech support (the instructions wanted a "registration number" which is the last nine digits of a number on the work order but nothing in the documentation mentions that.) Then the software kept giving me an error.

Now I'm posting using the cable modem and Starcade is on the TV (a video game gameshow from the early '80s.)

Time to go to work.
