What a Surprise
November 23, 2015 3:02pm CST
I woke up this morning and did what I do every morning, let the dogs out, shower, dress, feed the dogs then feed myself. I went on the computer and to my surprise I had no Internest Connection, same with the TV and even my Cell phone. I called my provider and they said that there are a number of towers that are connected and one of them had a problem, they were waiting on a part which should be there between noon and 2 pm and it should not take long to install that part so we should be up by 2:30 pm. They are pretty much on the money as it came back up before 3 pm. Now I am a happy Camper again.

Hello. long time no see :D oh my, it sounds like a nightmare to me. to lose an internet connection makes me want to flip the table! *flips the table* oopps... *unflips the table* I had such experience for 12 days straight, I felt very upset and stressed...for the early 3 days. the rest of that time, I spend my time to actual interact with my friends. you see, visiting their house and and interacting with their family. so what I concluded, there is always something good in everything. though, when I got my internet back, yayyyyy got my lifestyle back. hahaha

We have become so dependant of the Internet, the phone anda lot of things that once were luxuries. When I was a child we would have energy cuts once in a while, specially in Winter. My mother had a kerosene lamp and we seated around the dining room table and she recited poems to us. Now I almost went crazy after the earthquake in February 27, 2010, because I did not have electricity for almost 3 days. Fortunatly I have a gas range but I had to throw away most of the frozen seafood as I dared not eat it.

@Marcyaz No I think BT is but I'm not certain. BT own all the phone lines anyway. I was having to pay for temporary internet from Bt which was the disgusting part about it. It cost me about £90 all together. And now they are trying to charge me for leaving. I'll never use them again that is for sure x

It's crazy how much we have come to depend on the Internet. As an older person, I'm not quite as addicted to it as some younger people I know. But, I find myself a bit upset when I can't get on the computer and do what I want to do, when I have the time to do it.
