I am dealing with several challenges, including my e-mail is not working right now. (Thank you Comcast.) So postings and contact may be slim for a bit.
Update: Comcast says they can't tell me why my e-mail is down, but they have bumped it to a higher level. No, I can't get a credit, because e-mail is a "free feature." (But if I don't pay the bill which just arrived in the mail, I bet that "free feature" goes away!)
So I'm working on changing providers, will notify correspondents when up and running. Thinking G-Mail.
Meantime, I'm writing to Comcast: Dear Sir/Madam. While paying your bill is mandatory, my actually mailing the check is a "free feature" and that service is down right now. I can't tell you why, or when it will be up, but I've bumped the problem to a higher level. In the meantime, feel free to drop by my home and pick up the check.
