But since my appointment was cancelled, they couldn't reschedule the install for today. Friday, between noon and 4pm, I'll be getting it. (along with, apparently, HDTV goodness over the firewire port, since that's a basic feature of the box I ordered. Yummy.)
Here's to hoping they don't do something silly again, lest I find my way over to my favorite bookmark.
PS: Yesterday rocked. Those involved know why.
