So today the AT&T people finally showed up and got to work, only to find that they can't figure out where our cable drop goes. Basically there are three central cable points (i think the guys called them j-boxes) in the building. For some unknown reason AT&T can only get to two of them. The third they say is locked, and needs to be unlocked by building management. Building management, they say, claims to not have a key. And so the fun we call the quest to get cable continues. We now get the fun job of convincing the management that this box needs to be opened, one way or another. I'd bet money on them saying it's AT&T's job, however. We'll see... I really just don't see this all resolving itself cleanly.
