On a whim, I checked the Excite@Home Web page. There's no indication that the company is bankrupt and has shut down their service. To add insult to injury, the front page is a large slow-loading Flash movie with no obvious way to get a non-Flash version, and while it's loading, it displays messages like:

If you were using @Home broadband, this web page would already have loaded.


With @Home, you wouldn't have to wait.

Bozos. If @Home hadn't shut down its service, I wouldn't have to wait. When a Web company goes out of business, if they're going to leave their site up, it behooves them to post a notice about it. These people are such bozos that they're still letting new customers sign up for their service. It's too bad, though; it was a good service.
