O Comcast, Where Art Thou?

My home internet has been pretty crappy for the past couple of weeks now. It is so bad that I set up a SmokePing server to quantify my misery, as I have a Modem of Constant Sorrow that won’t stay online for more than a day or so without rebooting.

We’ve replaced the CM and checked the interior wiring.

What I really want is Gigabit Pro (fiber) service to my house, but apparently Comcast can’t or won’t run it the tremendous distance the nearest fiber is from my house: a whole two (2) poles away, right next to my nearest amp. 😦

Money Time

I’m good at managing my finances. I wanted to know how much time I spent on it, so over the last year I’ve tracked every minute working on finances: scanning receipts, entering transactions, reconciling accounts, budgeting, tracking tax-related things.

It turns out that during 2016 I spent 65 hours, 56 minutes, and 2 seconds related to financial matters.

So there you have it. There’s nothing special to getting good at money. You just have to spend a lot of time actually doing it.
