For me, $5/mo to rent the cablemodem from Comcast. $80 to buy the router. So it pays for itself in a little over a year. Definitely worth it.
When I got Comcast, I had previously had DSL, and the plan there was they gave you the DSL modem after the first year or something, so they did not charge a per-month fee. I stupidly thought this was true as well for Comcast, and never checked the bill. When I noticed the charge, I went right out and bought my own and haven't looked back.
Roberts had been sitting in seat 3A and the SEB under 2A, the seat in front of him, “was damaged.”
So he tried to get at the one under his seat (which was "tampered with"), but since he couldn't get it opened, he tried the seat in front of him (which was "damaged"), and he succeeded.
Someday somebody has got to decide whether the typewriter is the machine, or the person who operates it.
