I have the perfect cooler. Also I know this hardcore dude who tailgates every bears game so we might even be able to get a satellite dish. Also ill invite this same super obnoxious bears fan which would be cool.

How long did it take for the TV and internet peep to come after you set up an appointment with them? Trying to time everything so I don't go insane in my new place with no interweb..

Just some information for anyone who may find it useful.

Ordered Internet from RCN--never heard of this company in California so I was skeptical to select it over Comcast, but let me tell you--I'm so glad I did. For $29.99 I got blazing fast Internet that puts my former $69.99 Comcast service to shame. I also installed by myself over the phone with technical support.

Moving day for me. Loading all our stuff on the truck, sending it off, then living sparse for the next week.
Excited!

Thanks for the heads-up. If it's good enough for a fellow Golden Bear, it's good enough for me.

Nice...I've lived in Chicago for a couple years now and still hadn't heard of RCN (though admittedly I do live under a rock). Considering their $39.99 promotion for internet + the most basic of cable packages.

Honestly, call them now. Comcast is mailing me my box and will be out tomorrow to do Internet. They said it normally takes a week from creation to get an appointment.

Yes, call and schedule it ahead of time. Otherwise you're going to get there, call, and make an appointment for a week later.

I swear to god like 98%* of people in Chicago smoke. It's a shock, coming from the best coast.

Gah! Okay, thanks for the heads up. I'll be calling them up soon then. The building I'm going to be living in only does Comcast so I don't have any other choice.. Sigh.

I'm loving it. I'm on day 3 now with my E-Cig. Am (was?) a pack-a-day smoker and had only (4) cigarettes yesterday. Hurray for me!

What time?

I have to fly to Nebraska for the weekend (grandparent memorial service) on Friday so I might not be able to make it, but otherwise I'd definitely stop by and say hi.
