Can anyone tell me if phone service subscribed from a cable company in Virginia (Comcast) is OK? Is it as good as the old-fashioned phone service?
 
The reason I am asking is because Comcast quoted me $99 per month for "regular phone service + cable modem internet + basic cable TV", bundled.
 
I guess that I am kind of "out-of-touch" with that aspect of technology.

That is the standard deal across the country. Unlimnited long distance, basic cable, and decent internet. It's not bad at all.

I interviewed at the PTO a couple of months ago, and have since called HR several times to check on my status.  My recent call informed that I am still on the "referral list".  
 
Can anyone explain to me who is reviewing this list, and is it just a matter of finding an appropriate art to place me?  
 
Basically, I would like to know what are the odds of being hired once you make it on this list.  It seems I have been on this list since a couple of weeks after I interviewed from what I have been told by HR when calling periodically.

Hi Kiger,
 
I live in the relative area, right south of Old Towne Alexandria.  To get there from Springfield on 495 is not bad at all.  although, drive a wee bit more on 495 in that direction, and you'll get stuck in Wilson Bridge Traffic.  
 
If you are coming from Annandale on 236, be ready to hit a lot of traffic lights.  And i mean a lot.  Alexandria is kinda its own alcove in fairfax county, and alexandria city is where old towne is (not a part of fairfax county, please don't ask  Wink ).  
 
coming from Falls church using highway 7 will be a pain.  As soon as you start getting to that side of fairfax, its going to take you a while to get in.  Just the way it is.  Traffic is pervasive in NoVA.  There is no escaping it, only mitigating it.  
 
I would recommend you live in the Alexandria area.  My area, Huntington, isn't great, but its ok, and is very nearby.  Its 2 stops on the yellow line, and you'll be there in 5 minutes on the metro. I say try to live near the metro, so you won't have ot worry about it.  near braddock road metro, there's a lot of affordable housing (relatively speaking for this area).
