I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast. “Yes, we serve 11215!”
Cablevision: “No, we don’t serve 11215.” “We can’t let you proceed with anything useful because someone else recently lived at your new address. Fill out this form and someone will call you!”
[sound of crickets for a week, no phone call] “We’ll bury the phone number so you can’t easily call us, but here, use this phone-gateway Javascript thing to coordinate the call so you don’t learn our actual number but we learn yours!”
[phone-gateway Javascript thing maintains terrible sound quality and frequent dropouts, then disconnects in the middle of my order]

I love cable companies.
