Default Your whole life down one cable

TV, phone, internet all from cable. And the contractor sliced through it very easily. Actually only a day off-line, but what to do while waiting. Worst was the contact with the help-desk, with about seven mutiple choice questions, luckily on an 0800 number. Could have been worse; I could have been cut off from beer or baccy.

But then, the absence of news was good. It is all getting a bit boring.

ROFL!

Thanks for that, Dick - it's the first laugh I've had this whole long boring frustrating day.
