Out of the Blue

We were planning one of our occasional forays to the homeland of Brooklyn today, but I've been spending too much time struggling with my internet connection, which has once again started slogging through molasses (my current download speed is 74 kbps). Now instead of getting my recommended daily allowance of pastrami I'm getting to spend the afternoon on the phone with tech support enduring attempts to address a problem that impacts all the computers on my network by trying things like clearing my browser cache. Sigh.

And btw, "cheap" is ~1500$ for 1 bedroom....
I'll make no claims of accurate knowledge in this area. However, anecdotally, I'd guess your chances of something that cheap within 30 minutes are slim and none. You'll have to get lucky.
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
