Back in the mid-80's I had an Amiga. Was having some problems with it and took it to the dealer to see if he could fix it. He powered it up in the store and, like the rattle in your car that stops when you take it to the garage, it was fine. I asked him if he had any idea why. He said, "Sometimes they just wanna go out for a ride."
An update: A few weeks ago Time Warner had to send a tech to my house with a new cable box because I was having frequent signal stalling across all channels. He set it up and ran diagnostics on my line and left, saying all seemed up to spec. Within a day, the problem resumed. So I called them again today.
While I was on the phone, I was also attempting a TurboTax update — which kept failing.
So with the CSR still on the line, I power cycled the modem again, and waddaya know, update successful. It's pretty obvious now that I've got a line problem, because the stalling TV picture, and corrupted dmgs and failed updates started happening at about the same time.
'Nuther visit scheduled for tomorrow or Wednesday. Will be interesting to see if TWC comes up with a fix instead of an excuse this time.
