In Case Any One Missed Me - I'm Back - Computer Problems

How many of you have suddenly disappeared offline for a few days due to connectivity problems. My provider had a major problem on Thursday May 29th and it has onlt just been resolved now after calling many a call centre everyday to resolve the issue including me paying £30 a hour for someone else to try sort when it was provider error which they will reimburse which is good. Do you have problems getting through to the help lines? How many hours, days had it taken to sort? Are you one of the lucky ones that hasn't experienced this yet? Please share and to all my friends on here sorry I haven't replied but will try to play catch up. Ellie :D

A whole month....... I would be pulling my hair out by then or at least I would be a permanent fixture down the local library to get back online somehow. Welcome back you. Ellie :D

Hi Cupid, Thank you. Wow what a coincidence. I wonder why that was, 3 whole days. I know me being offline gave me chance to catch up with the ironing pile though so there is always a plus side to everything eh! Ellie :D

I make my own luck so no it was not you being bad luck LOL. In fact you were the only one I was able to send a message to that day. Yes the plus side was that I caught up with a lot of stuff at home. Ellie :D

We had some problems the first month or so with our current internet provider. Usually it wasn't too hard to get through to them. The problems we were having took a good two weeks or so before we could get our isp to listen to us about what the problem was and finally do something about it.

Hi Timothy, it is just frustrating isn't it when there are problems. I don't think we realise how reliant on be online we become until the service is suddenly not there. I a pleased to hear that your teething problems with this provider have been resolved and hope tbat they are going to compensate you in some way to for the two weeks. Ellie :D

Yeah it really is amazing how much you rely on being on the internet and don't realize it until you can't do it. Oh yeah they gave us credit twice for all the down time that we had thankfully.

Hi Candee, Good to see you back too! My son is fine, full of energy as usual. I used the time offline to catch up on the ironing and boring stuff really but you saying you have been concentrating on your project reminds me that I really should get down to some serious studying I have 5 more modules to do. What is your project about? Good for you for staying offline to do it also. Keep up the good work. Ellie :D

I haven't been here much do to vacation and I am only back for one day before I take off again. Glad you got back online again. While I was gone my son in law worked on my website and he had to call the help line....there was a 30 minute waiting period! He finally fixed it himself as yahoo was having problems!

I am delighted to see you back Ellie. I thought maybe you couldn't stand to hear just one more of my jokes! The internet is great when it's working, but when it's not: Grrrrrrrrr. Well done you too for getting a reimbursement.

Hi P1kef1sh, I made sure every call I made I logged their name so they cannot argue and eventually last night when I spoke to the first person I said no disrespect but I wish to be put through to the head of the department as I have been speaking to people since Thursday re this issue and it still isn't resolved. It was after that within the hour that I was back online and I also got the guy who sorted it name also. I then went to customer services and requested reimbursement of all costs including calls to other companies and they gave me a month free line rental immediately as an apology and are sorting out the rest. I hope I haven't missed too much on here, especially some of your jokes, LOL but I will play catch up. Ellie :D

I have discovered that several of us here were having these problems at about the same time. How strange is that? It would be understandable if we were all from the same place but we are from different countries. Perhaps we are all connected through myLot in some way....spooky.

Hi theMARKER, I finally have it all resolved and the reason I had to pay was because the ISP provider siad it was an error with my computer but when engineer came out he said it wasn't but I had to pay £30 to him for the hour anyway. This will be reimbursed from provider though so not a problem. Thanks for your kind words. I hope I stay connected forever also. Ellie :D

Hi Plumwish07, Two whole weeks, I think I would have changed providers too. I am contracted into to the one I have now but I would have found a way to get out of it somehow if this problem hadn't been resolved. Thanks for sharing. Ellie:D

Oh,our provider should have back-up isn't it.I do have experienced having problems with my provider lately but they have provided us alternative access using other lines so we shut down for only half day and got operational in the afternoon.The original connections was then return after a week.Thanks.

Of course you were missed! I wondered about you, darlin. And I'm so glad you're back, welcome. As for myself, I haven't had any problems at all since we got the new computer, but before that, it was awful, just awful. So I fully sympathize with you. Don't wear yourself out catching up though. One thing at a time. See ya out there.
