Good Friday, have some time at home, so it's time to call all the services and switch addresses. Apparently, for electricity from NSTAR, they will pick up the tab for the electricity during the time the the loft is not occupied. That's pretty good. So I don't have to pay for the initial few weeks that I was not there. Really, I wasn't there.... Switching off my old DSS from DirecTV was a little harder -- their phone menu system will not let me talk to a real person, until I tried pressing the "0" key. They were very nice and tried really hard to get me to just suspend my account so that they can come and install the new service at the loft later.
