I'll miss Skinamax

The highlight of this week has been the switch over to a different cable company at Summer Isle. The original owner of Summer Isle was also the owner of a cable company based in Marietta, GA, so that's the cable company we had. One of the perks was free pay channels - HBO, Showtime, Cinamax, etc. Of course, that was just about the only perk. They couldn't keep UPN on the air (a big thank you to Mom for taping Enterprise for me these last two years), several other channels were just dropped with no explanation, and their customer "service" was anything but. So now under new ownership, Summer Isle finally brought in a new cable TV provider, Shentel, which seems to be based out of Virginia. You would think with such a dramatic change, the least we could have expected out of this new company might be a new channel line-up card or something. But no - I've spent the last 2 nights trying to figure out what's what. Not only that, but naturally, the pay channels are gone. No more late night crappy porn. Oh well....at least we've got SpikeTV back - MXC rules....

What do you mean, no more crappy porn? Don't you have "The Internet" out there on Buckwalter?
