Internet is down Today

My net is down today. I called up the provider and they said there is problem with the server and it will take 24 hours for them to get it fixed. Fortunately, I have my kind neighbour to lend his laptop. Do you feel down as well when your net connection goes down?

In this case you are really lucky that you have a kind neighbor. When I have to face network failure I have nothing to do but waiting. There is not scope to borrow a computer or a internet connection here at my area. Happy mylotting.

hi joystick7, its very sad to hear , atleast for me it is very sad becasue my work and all is related to internet. i am having a work related to websites and i have to be online most of the time also becasue i have some websites where my work is related to internet. i suffer a lot during rainy season becasue at that time becasue of lightening and heavy rainfall these internet connections dont function . the wires are broken and the wireless is of no use. if some earthquake also occurs then also internet people suffers becasue some wires are going under ground and some big and huge huge cables are coming from sea. so anything , i mean mishappening in nature happens, internet people are screwed, and i really mean it and know it because i am fully based on internet, my work, my business and all and all and all.

Sometimes my internet too will die,but I wont call my S&P.Normally the connection will be reset in an hour or so.So I wont bother about it.But I do feel annoying at times when I need to search something but my connection won't be there.But it happens rarely.

Oh, thats okay. Im sure you'll get that fixed in no time since you have a thriving online venture.^_^ I used to feel really down when and if my internet connection is busted or something but these days Im quite used to not being online for most of the time because of paperwork and other such requirements for school. I do get to miss being online. However, at the end of the day Im feeling very tired that all I wanna do is sleep. In my free time I still go online especially if there isnt that much good movies or shows on cable.

I go crazy when my internet is down! LOL - it is my lifeline. It was very nice of your neighbor to allow you to use his laptop. I feel lost without the internet. I do everything on here! I go to school, banking, chatting, emails, etc... It is very important to my life!

Aren't you lucky that you can still be connected. Out here when your down you're down, all ours is run together except our cell phone.
