So, what do you do when they call back / cut off the cablecard?
I just lost all of my Firewire-cable service and with a negative 
three-day notice!!!!!
I'm fairly certain that Charter is doing this out of greed, trying to 
force me into renting
more of their stuff, this will NOT! happen I really want to give them 
the boot and inflict as much pain on them as I can as a bonus.
I really hate to think of how many dollars I paid to them in rentals 
over the past decades.
