Comcast Service outage in Pearland Texas

Dec 5, 2009 by Paul White

Tonight comcast had a major outage here in Pearland Texas.  The outage started around 7PM Friday Dec 5th 2009, and of this posting ( 12:19 AM Dec 6th Saturday ) Service was still not restored.  Granted today we had snow, which is rare in Houston ( happends only once a year if at all ).  But still Snow shouldn't affect Comcast Service.  So I figured out how to tether my computer onto my Sony Xperia X1i and use my unlimited AT&T data connection to get online and keep working.  However I was very surprized with the speed I got from AT&T.

Sony Xperia X1i hand polished chrome battery cover

But the paint is not the most scratch resistant stuff.  After a while your Battery cover will look beat up.  So I got out some sand paper, and some metal polish creme, to take my battery cover from dull black, to a near perfect mirrored chrome finish.  I have included before and after shots along with instructions for those who might want to try this on their phone.
