In which I am something of a doofus  
For the last year or so, our cable tv has had an intermittent problem in which the video is covered by jagged rainbow static, and the audio is replaced by a VERY LOUD buzz. Seriously, vuvuzelas have nothing on it. Sometimes turning the tv off and then on again helps; other times not.

It's been like that for the last two weeks; at least, every time in the last couple of weeks I've turned on the tv it's been doing that.

I am a doofus.

It was the cable running from the cable box to the tv. At least it was Dale who discovered and fixed the problem, rather than a cable company tech. (I hadn't ever called them about it because it was always intermittent. And I didn't want to call about it this time because our house is squalorish and I couldn't stand the idea of someone else being in it.)
