gosh, this whole afternoon, we do not have internet connection. i thought we were being disconnected by the internet provider because we already received notice or the bill of the payment for the month. i stayed just reading books and felt tiredness and bored. so i get up and went to my friend's house. but as i went home, i was so happy that the wifi modem internet led light is coloured yellow which means that the net connection is working and is okay. so now, i hurriedly open the laptop and get online. that is why, i am not at mylot, making my participation and such. so thanks heaven... had an experience such thing as you got home and found out there is not internet connection no more? how did you feel? please share, thanks!

That's not quite what John Lennon sang, is it?

Actually, "Imagine There's No Internet Connection At Home, How Boring It Would It Be", if you could fit it to the tune, would make a much, much better song than John Lennon's original "Imagine" (which I've read about).

I am not capable of living without Internet because I have so many things to check and do online every single day. I can read books but after a while it becomes boring to some extent. However, I love watching series in bed on my laptop. Once you get used to using Internet, it is not easy to go a day without it.

somehow i can manage even it is a bore not to get online. but if have assignments, projects and any reports at schools that would be the time of worrying for internet is broad and we can seek anything in there aside as it is medium for communication also

Oh, it's good to hear that you have your internet connection now and you're back in myLot. Sometimes we experience very slow internet connection and sometimes there's no connection at all. I've experienced it a lot of times too. I reported the problem to our internet connection provider and it was under observation for the next 24 hours. Their feedback was so slow. From February to April, they tried to fix it twice. On the third attempt, they concluded that we should get it disconnected because our location has a poor reception. Nowadays, we've been sharing internet with our neighbor. However, they'll just switch it and turn it off anytime they want. They switch it late around 9am and turn it off at 10pm. I hope they'll just turn it on 24/7. Without internet, life is boring. We get a lot of benefits in using the internet. I guess a few hours is not enough especially us, we're just using one computer at home. We have to divide the time into three users, my husband, our son and me. LOL. Thanks for sharing and happy mylotting.

indeed... when i am at my boyfriend's house, since they do not have internet connection but has at his cousins', what i did is waiting for them to turn their wifi connection. and too pity if they will turn it on. but in the house, we have limitless connection. it is just okay, the connection is quiet compensating to our usages. well, the people in the house just always surfing the net. if the kids were here, they will just play online. and we used it us older for our school assignments and projects. yes it is really relieving to have the connection back. too boring to stay at whole day without internet on. so thanks for joining angel :)

My pleasure, missjahn. Yeah, you're right. A whole day without internet is really a boring day. Last Saturday we had a brownout in our hometown. We got so bored. We couldn't watch movies, TV, surf internet, etc. I hate brownouts. LOL. Happy mylotting and thanks for the comment, too.

you are right, even you have all the computers and modems for connection to the net, when you do not have electricity, all of these gadgets are useless for the moment. we all need electricity to turn our computer and wifi modem. so thanks for joining again angel :)

You have been addicted by internet so far,i never imagine there is no connection internet at home,cause without that i still can make other activities or working without internet.For me internet it's just tools,not primary but just help your working.

Kids who have been born in the last 10 to 15 years or so are already introduced with the convenience of accessing multitude of information and entertainment. It would be hard for them to live circa 80s or older than that. For me, I have become so attached to internet in the last several years. It has become a source of small income in the last couple years (which I hope to bring it to next level), any kind of entertainment like movies, music, and games, and of course information of any kind. I would rely so much on internet if I live away from civilization like in a far away cabin (hopefully with wireless connection). Last year, my netbook was out of order. It took me more than two to three weeks trying to figure out what's wrong with it. I finally took it to repair and it would cost me a lot more than buy a new one. Today, I have a better laptop/notebook. Within that period, it was difficult because I would try to find information that I normally look for online. Fortunately, my cell phone was able to connect online, but it was not the same. I had to adjust looking at smaller screen and it was not very convenient at all. Of course, it was more or less boring. At least, I have a TV where I can watch some shows. If not, it would be very boring, which I have to start getting creative.

i have my phone too. if not at home, it is just easy to bring my cellphone along because it is very light and i just can put it in my bag unlike if you bring laptop that it is much heavier compared to the former for i do not have netbook or whatsoever. but using cellphone is very hard because it has small screens and small virtual keypad. i made lots of typos that will takes time for you need to erase it and make corrections for it. so very hard. on the contrary, i am much happy that have nothing at all. yes, internet as you said, it is a source of informations, entertainment and etc. i can live without it but just boring if have none. so thanks for joining :)

I could imagine being without internet since it happens. I would probably be able to clean and reorganize my home more. I never tire of that unless I am not feeling well. Enjoy your internet.

oh that time, i am just sleeping the whole day noon. after that because i was so tired of just lying on the bed, i managed to get up and then went to my friend's house. it was worth it because we haven't seeing for so long, so it was the right time to visit her. i was having fun and then was so surprised that as i got home, saw the wifi light blinking on which indicated that we have the connection back. but there was one time that it happened that i washed all my dirty clothes and it was done for a day. so that time i can say that, it is helpful to finish the chores if having no connection online. thanks for joining here ;)

not really a big deal to me if there is no internet connection except if there are deadlines for my online assignments. reading a book would be more fun for me especially if it's a good one.

Before Internet came in my life, I used to spend more time in front of the tv, more time in my garden, phoning friends, more time with family and so on. In the absence of Internet, no doubt for a while I will feel fish out of water but I suppose I will go back to doing what I was doing before it came in my life!

you are right for we were born in this world with nothing. so being bored for the moment is tolerable. there are lots of things to do for fun if there is no internet like reading and be with our family.. thanks

Well, if you are used to be in front of the computer most of the time, I guess you would feel bored if you have no internet connection. In case that happens you could do some household chores which needs attention to stay busy. Reading books that interests you is also an option or watch TV.
@missjahn (4574)

you are right. to add since i am anticipating that i will be busy soon so i nap in advance to store vigour in me. oh yes... we should find another thing to do if no net connection. for sure there are other ways to keep ourselves busy at. any interest will do not to be bored. thanks

It's funny because I was just thinking about what if there was no internet. I thought about this yesterday but I was thinking about what if something happened to the entire internet for everyone all at the same time. I thought about how satellites run a lot of what we do on earth and I think it is kind of stupid. Space is a dangerous place with meteors, comets and space junk. I feel the satellites are too vulnerable for us to have such a dependency on them to do every day things here on earth. Not to mention all the aliens movies I have seen where the first thing they take out is the satellites or use them against us. Anyway, yes I have experienced this when the bill was late. It's kind of a sad, heartbreaking feeling like your whole world just ended when you attempt but cannot connect.

well i guess like just before we will suit ourselves to any other entertainment that we usually do when there was no internet yet. i guess we will feel sorry if in our lives there is no net at all but this feeling is just for a moment because whether we like it or not we will accept and face the fact that there would no internet no more. just in case for human must be versatile. thanks

yes, i cannot imagine too how it would be if there is no internet connection at home, it would really be boring. i experienced when sometimes there is no connection from our internet provider for a day because there is a problem with their server, i always take a look at the wifi modem to see if it is working, i sometimes get impatient because it is really different if there is no internet. when i can see it finally working, i really feel happy and felt like i was away for so many days, i open the laptop or computer immediately. i am used to being online everyday so i really get bored when i cannot go online.

I don't even like to imagine. Not a single minute of my stay at home. LOL. Although sometimes it is not inevitable, for some reasons, typhoons, floods, brown out, broken transformer, so many reasons uncontrollable reasons there could be. But it is truly very boring if you just stay at home without any way of having other forms of making productive and useful time.
