I got this email from Comcast about Exite@Home. Here is the email:
Dear Comcast @Home Customer,
On Friday, September 28, Excite@Home, the Internet service provider for Comcast @Home, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to allow them the opportunity to restructure their financial situation with their creditors.
As you may know, financial restructuring allows companies that have declared bankruptcy to continue to operate their business successfully.
More than five years ago, Comcast committed to the high-speed Internet business by partnering with Excite@Home, and we continue to be committed to providing high quality, reliable service. We are confident that Excite@Home, whose major shareholders include AT&T, Cox and Comcast, will maintain all e-mail and web space services for our customers.
Comcast will continue providing its customers with the best high-speed Internet service both now and in the future. We are doing everything possible to ensure that the 950,000 customers we will serve by year-end will continue to be served well while Excite@Home restructures its financial situation.
Comcast views high-speed Internet as one of the most important products in our portfolio and we remain committed to this business and to our customers.
We thank you for choosing Comcast and look forward to continuing to provide you with the best high-speed Internet service available.
David JulianoSr. Vice President & General Manager
Well, I must say that it was rough getting the site on a remote server but my host finally came through, and what a good deal I'm getting I might add. Welcome to the new ASELabs.com. I'll be advertising the site more now that the site can handle more traffic. Thanks to everyone that made this possible. One more thing, if you catch any errors, post in the forum or email me. I might have missed some pages that required minor edits...
I'm resizing the logo uptop to make it take up less height. This current image isn't resizing that well. The original person that sent it to me had a great design in jpg form. I lost is, but if anyone can recreate something with those colors and no more than 70 pixels high, it'll be really helpful. Thanks.
I plan to add some features to the forum this weekend. (Of course I have to after I do some homework for college ). Features include: Who's online, view user profile page, locking theads at top of forum (Curtesy of Anandtech's forum), mark all PMs as read, 'delete' PMs, forgot password page, attention admin pages. New forums will be added and will have security features such that only an admin can start a thread and such.
Some upgraded site features include: admin verify user news submittions, admin verify editorials, and some other things. For the most recent additions to this list, check the site forum.
While I feel really bad, life must go on. No one will forget what happened yesterday, and they shouldn't.
I am making mobile pages for some area of the site. Some areas are: home page, ratings, user editorials, news, and forums. The forum will be very limited in functionality, but it will have pms and posting available...
I keep looking at the smoke and I can't stop crying. I don't know if my mom went to NYC also. I spoke to my father and he said he doesn't know. I can't reach many people because the phones are very very bad now. I hope that this chaos will end soon.
I'm at college and I wake up to see a huge plum of smoke. This is a terrible day for me and for the entire country. I hope everyone mourns for the people that were killed and that swift painful action is taken to the people that caused this damage. I personally have a few ideas who was behind this but I won't say it.
How many of you use a mobile (PPC,Palm, Pocket PC) device and would like to have pages that are made to fit on the tiny screens of the devices? I just got my Ipaq 3135(Black and White) and it rocks. Now, I just need a modem or wireless card for it. Any company that would like me to try their CF ethernet,modem,wireless 802.11b card can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Post your thoughts in the forums.
I've got cookies working finally... If you enter a message now, you'll stay logged on until your broswer is closed. It only works on the forum now, I'll get around to the editorials and news later. I have class you know . Ohh, I'm also going to add a routine to parse smiles in the forum...
ASELabs.com has hit 101 unique users! While not a shinning number, it is a big step. There are also 5168 hits since I started logging hits. Keep it up and I'll have the login pages up soon, no more typing your username and pass all the time!!
While I'm at home (Its good to be home ), I'll be working on a new forum... I should have most of the stuff done by tonight. I am also taking suggestions about what you'd like to see in this forum, features that is.
