    If TWC goes out, it's no big loss. I get tired of watching commercials.

    I love reading all the comments about how horrible TWC is. Y'all act like it's the end of the world if you can't watch cable for an hour. I've lived in Raleigh for a year now and this is the only outage I've experienced and they fixed it quickly. Y'all can switch to dish and not be able to watch TV every time it rains! No thanks, I'll keep my TWC.

    "TWC is horrible; especially news channel 14. They sent out a technician 8 times in 5 months & every time the tech came out, he blamed the guy before him, and stated I needed a new box, new wire, etc... I will never have TWC ever again."

    What does that have to do with News 14?

    I missed the hunting shows I record on my VHS so I deserve a credit for the time they were off line. Do you think I can get it?

    " I don't pay with check and the amount is automatically debited from my ample account every month...they wanted to see my bank statements proving I had funds."

    I got rid of TWC last month. By the way, change your bank accounts. It is unwise to allow ANYONE to automatically remove money from your account.

    Too bad. For a brief period that means the carbon footprint of millions of households and other places were TVs are used and the Internet is used reduced their carbon footprint. Longer outages would be much better.
