I am in my aunt´s house in San Fernando. I´m having a lovely time, but last night I could not say goodnight to you. There was no internet. First I tried to downlad a book from Amazon. There are free books there and although the free ones are not the best, they are a nice way to end the day before I turn off the lights. But there was no way. At first I thought it was that I´m still learning my way wth the tablet. But then I turned on my laptop and internet wasn´t working. So I just went to sleep. And now it is a good morning, friends. Internet is on. For how long? I don´t know.

In the country here technology is not the same as in a big city.

@marguicha,That's the problem I face everyday at night.Internet becomes inaccessible.And when it happens,it's really so irritating and depressing.

I don´t have such problems where I live although it slows down at the time children are out of school.

@else34 It seems that things are worse in small towns.

Hope that internet stays on for you today! So frustrating when the internet shuts down.

Glad to hear that the internet is working again for you. We tend to take it for granted now and think nothing of connecting to it. When we don't have it we are lost and to think not all that long ago there was life before the internet. lol

I would be happy if Internet went out when I had to cook or do some chores...that way I would leave the table..and not get stuck to it..lol. But it goes out at other times.. :(

I haven't had connection problems in awhile. Every once in awhile I'll have a few days in a row where I'm having trouble, but it always rights itself. Except the times I had to replace my modem. Hope that doesn't happen again any time soon. Does your internet go off a lot in your country, or is this an exception to the rule? AND. ..glad you got here!
