I love my cable modem service, when it works. It's fast, with low latency and better-than-T1 speeds, and the price can't be beat. But we just had a 9 hour outage on Charter Pipeline. From their phone message, I gather it affected all or most of the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. It's obviously back up now. I don't know if I'll get around to writing anything this evening, but it's more likely I'll have something up during my usual time of around midnight to 2:00 am Central Time.
