I go to call it in.
I call from the cell and Comcast says the techs are already on site and that it'll be fixed in 45 minutes. We'll see. [Okay, there was a spark of life at the 50 minute mark, but it took 2 hours before I was back up.]
I call Verizon. As previously blogged, I've had a lot of fun dealings with them before.
After about 5 minutes of a bot walking me through menu items, inconclusive line tests and warnings about service contracts, I bailed.
Since I like having a landline as backup, I will have to call it in at some point. I'm just really not looking forward to it.
[Okay, this is kind of odd -- I wasn't getting dial tone, but I called from my cellphone and it rang, so now my phone seems to be working. That's kind of a relief.]
