i got so mad last night that i haven't participated well in the discussions last night. i also wasn't able to post a new discussion that i already forgot what i have started last night. would you imagine, my connection here was cut at about 8:45pm and never reconnected until i went home. gosh. i called up 171 and reported my problem. and the only thing the guy on the other line said was, we have a problem which started at 6:00pm. he said that it will be restore within these hours. that was really my poor participation last night. have you experienced the same before, in the middle of your writing, suddenly your connection cut and it didn't came back until the next day?

Sorry to hear about that Neil. I had the same experience when I was using dial-up. You wanted so much to be active and you have lots of ideas stored in your mind ready to be shared here in mylot. Suddenly, the power went off or the connection was cut and you wait patiently but it's robbing the best of you. Well, don't worry, things get better after going bad. I hope we can get a better internet connection or providers in the Philippines without those crocs pocketing some profit from the NBN deal. LOL!

But we can only wish. Everybody is up to his/her own interest. They join the politics for their own gain and not for the people. Maybe there's a chosen few who have their hearts for the people. But what is their influence compared to those greedy crocs?

it happens. there need not be a power failure or a connection got lost. it happened to me more than three times. i will finish writing and press post response button. then, it takes a lot of time to post it. so, i will refresh the page only to find the blank space again. it happened quite a number of times. so i am just copying the matter i am gonna post by pressing ctrl+c and then press post response. in case if it is not being copied, i have a backup. even for this post, i have just taken a copy...

i think that is a good idea of having a back-up copy of your posts. i guess i will follow what you are doing. thanks for the response.

I always experience this kind of problem. Specially when there's power failure, or during heavy rains accompanied by thunderstorm. Oh my, I don't know what I'll do everytime that happens. I feel that there's something missing. Half of my day I spend on the internet. My day will not be complete without chatting with my friends, doing myLot and Yuwie, and of course talking with my husband...

I dont have the same problem here since our connection is being provided by the IT department (im working on myLot during office hours since I dont have my own laptop yet), so theres no interruptions so far, but my problem is that it is very slow. Cant even open my own page @ yuwie, and I have to refresh I think twice before I could get through with my post here @ myLot. Too bad.
