Sat around the new apartment for a few hours (I went over early because there was a fire alarm in the old apartment building) and waited for the cable guy. And waited. And waited. About ten minutes 'till 3 he called. I assumed he was at the front door (that's how the new security system works) but in fact he was twenty minutes away. Bah. He finally showed up and fairly quickly did the swap. The new cable box has a ridiculous number of ports on the back (including DVI, ethernet, USB and Firewire).
Brian should be over shortly and we will start filling up the truck with furnishings. I think it should take less than an hour to do it all.
