A problem of mine was recently solved, but the source of it both terrifies and angers me.
My internet connection has been spotty for about a year, and during this summer it consistently died from about 11:30 AM to 6:30 PM, the duration dependent on how hot it was outside. It was eventually discovered that the cable leading from my house to the pole was damaged. Melted. By a neighbor's bonfire last autumn!
Aside from royally boffing my internet connection, that fire could have been a serious risk to the neighborhood, considering that it was right by a rotted wooded fence, and how the more unkempt yards would lend themselves to a nice [hellish] flame. This autumn, I will make a point of calling the fire department. Much as I hate bothering with neighbors, I would like to not die a horrible death or even worse, live to lose all of my stuff.
