It's Never Simple, Is It?
Found out why my DSL line hasn't been activated yet. Apparently, the order canceled itself since the phone line wasn't active yet. Utterly brilliant.
So I re-submitted by activation request (why, oh why, must I activate something I already have?) and it should be hooked up next Thursday. 'Cause that's the soonest some tech can take 5 seconds to throw a fucking switch.
I swear, if Comcast wasn't trying to shaft me on basic cable (42 dollars a month?!) I'd be getting a cable modem right now. It'd almost be worth changing local phone companies over this, if I wouldn't probably have to go through Verizon anyway.
Edit: I couldn't get a cable modem even if I wanted to; Comcast's upgrades to Pittsburgh's cable system apparently don't include Internet service. Wonderful.
