time warner not the problem?

So after I went and badmouthed Time Warner it looks like our router might be at fault, as three times in the last 24 hours our connection was down, I rebooted just our router, and things then worked. Time for a Fry's trip, hopefully to find a 802.11n-compatible router that will solve all our problems.
Most of my referrer logs these days are fairly straightforward (and I don't pay as much attention), but I saw a good one this morning: pictures of abs on MSN search leads to my Pretty Pictures through Genetic Algorithms (since a few examples there use the "abs" function :-) )

more washer fun

So last Saturday finally the Sears guy came and quickly diagnosed what was wrong with the washer (incompetent movers unhooked the drum somehow and it fell on all the electronic stuff below it. So it'll cost a few hundred to fix, fine, whatever.
He had to order parts for it and so made the earliest possible appointment to come and fix it, which was next Friday, November 2. That day didn't work for us so he said to reschedule when we got the parts in.
Parts came today, I rescheduled for the earliest Saturday they had, which was November 10. That makes a total of 32 days from calling in service to (God willing) repair. This does not make me a happy panda.
