Bummer! Off-line for six days!
May 3, 2007 9:07pm CST
My modem stopped working and it took six days to get it replaced and my computer back on line. While it was very frustrating to not be able to do what I usually do on line, it was kind of peaceful not to have email! I am in a position of some responsibility with a non-profit and gets LOTS of emails wanting this or that from me. It was nice to have the break. I figured if it was really important, they'd phone. So I didn't worry about not being available through my email. But I didn't like that I couldn't access myLot, or my financial information, or multiple kinds of info I needed. And I didn't like that I couldn't SEND emails. So I've learned that it isn't all bad to be cut off from email for a while, although I'll be busy catching up. And it cramps my style to not have access to the web. Can't have everything, I guess. Just wanted all my friends to know that I'm back and I didn't leave by choice!

I am sorry you lost your internet access for that period of time. I can live without it but I know it would be hard for me. Most of my contact with other people is via the internet. It has greatly added to my enjoyment of life.
