Because I know you've been waiting with baited breath, it turns out the freezing picture/pausing playback was my cable box after all.  A couple days ago I went to check my DVR and it said "Unrecoverable write error" and never worked again.  I took the box in and swapped it out.  So far, no problems.

Now hopefully they'll refund me the $28 service charge that accomplished nothing.  *grumble*

I finally have a blog-worthy life experience.  Judge me not by my digital content.

So a couple weeks ago my cable starts doing this thing where (on some channels) the picture will freeze solid.  Sound keeps going, but picture is like it's on pause.  This has only happened a couple times since, but ever since, any recordings on the DVR will have frequent pauses in the show.  It'll stop for a second (sound and all) and then keep going.  Very annoying.

So I called and they did their long-distance reset thing.  No help.  Next day a guy comes out and checks out my signal and wiring and stuff and makes another appointment for the next day (today) to have all the wiring replaced.

So the guy (different guy) comes out today and replaces every single piece of cable from the box to the pole in the alley (although this was a good opportunity to rerun the cable so it's not VISIBLY TRAIPSING UP THE STAIRS AND GOING THROUGH A HOLE IN THE WALL -- remember when I wanted to do this 2 years ago Spike?).  As soon as the guy left, the picture froze again.  He was awesome enough to give me his direct number though, so he came back after the appointment he went to and tested the line again.  Since it was exhibiting the issue, he was able to see lots of errors coming through on the channels that were having the problem.  And an interesting circumstance: the guy he was just visiting (in my neighborhood) was having issues on the same channel.

So, they're elevating the problem to area-wide and investigating everybody's error rates in my neighborhood.  Hopefully something good will come of this.

And it's nice that I didn't have to (or at least haven't had to) replace my DVR cause I still have some stuff on there I haven't watched.

Howdy.

Just your friendly neighborhood reminder that this Saturday, milkbar is opening for Information Society at The Varsity!  This is pretty huge for us, and we're super excited.  It's also our first show as a 4-piece so that'll be new and interesting.

Hey Adam, Kakalios totally realized a dream:

For the rest of you, the guy in this article was my physics professor at the U for two different classes.  I am jealous.
