Hades has Frozen Over

In a little more than one day on Comcast, and felt the need to spill my views on the matter. First, just because I have chosen Comcast does not mean I endorse or find them as a better alternative.

As for plans for tomorrow, not much is planned. I will likely be home with the exception of getting a couple of things I should have got while I was in the Northside.
