Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

Net has been down since Thursday. My phone was disconnected for mysterious reasons at around 8pm. A call to the phone company quickly brought my line back. DSL has been dead since then due to a mixture of false promises, incompetence, and outright lies. I have pretty good reason to suspect it's been on the part of my ISP as well.

I actually *yelled* at a tech last night. I almost never do that. I make a conscious effort to avoid it except in the most deserving cases.

On the plus side: AT&T is offering me a fiber connection + VoIP. I need to figure out whether it's everything I want (static IP, unblocked ports, 'real' phone number), but if it is, then it'll come out cheaper and faster.
