For the first time, I received advanced notice of a scheduled outage to my service. It's on 2/27. Hooray!
But 2/27 is a Monday, which is a day when I, along with most people I know, will be planning to get work done. When I was a systems programmer on a mainframe computer, we always scheduled major, planned outages for Sunday mornings from 00:00 to 08:00. Why doesn't Cox do something similar?
