View Full Version : A rough day without internet
June 4th, 2007, 04:06 PM
Hi All, what a way to start a thread. Not that I want my first post to be a whine session or anything, but dang, pass me that cheese. It's amazing how quickly we let the internet consume a major part of our lives. And when it's gone, Ack -- we feel withdrawals. Yup, I'm at work because I couldn't stand it any longer. :turned: My internet connect just ain't working. Grrrr. It's probably something simple, but then nothing is simple at our house. The plug to the connection is behind some drawers. I know, not the best place, but DH and son love to hide wires. Anyway, I have to take out all the drawers just to unplug it for 60 seconds just to see if that's the prob. Alas, those drawers aren't coming out easily so now, it's a rough wait for DH to come home. I think it had something to do with that beautiful full, blue moon. :swoon: My van's in the shop as well and that's another story.

Here..I have cut you up a whole plate of cheese to go with your whine...because I soooo understand! :P:
You are right...I love being on the internet and I am addicted. What is even worse, I promise you (sad this is sad) I have more friends or more friends that I am interactive with than in RL. :roflmao:
Hope your internet is up and going soon honey! Welcome to our forum family!

I know exactly how that is and no internet is sort of like losing your cell phone and that is your only phone you cannot communicate to anyone since they cannot call you and you have to figure out where it got lost or left ...cannot even call your own # to find it in the car or something.
But last time I did without the internet on vacation I almost died I begged sis to take me to the public library a few times for access when I was out of state because SHE doesn't have a computer at home arghhhh.. only at work ...
And has had them crash on me too so I know that too.

Ya know, it turned out to be a simple thing. I just needed to reset the modem, but discovery this simple thing was no so simple. I had to call the internet provider and got the dreaded auto voice. Grrrr. It couldn't cypher my Texas twang and I had to repeat myself nine million times just to get through to a live voice. Then - she wants to confirm my modem. Eh? Doesn't she already know what modem I have. I have no clue where it is because my darling son hid the box. Needless to say, I now know where that darn box is so I can fix things a little quicker the next time.
Now see, I wouldn't be lost if the cell phone disappeared. I hate talking on the phone. Why? Cuz I talk too darn much whenever someone calls and I don't get anything done. It's all good.

see that is hands on training for computers 101 learn it by doing it yourself so you never have that problem again though the accent thing might be a bit hard maybe try a british accent next time so it negates the twang haha.. believe it or not many English or British actors can put on a southern accent easily .. so the reverse might be true .. hmm makes you wonder... but am glad it got fixed...:notworthy:

Hi Illyria, and yep, at least it's up and running. I'd be lost without and Karenne, thanks for the cheese, it was mightly yummy with that chablis.
Lainey, I agree. In this day and age, you just about have to learn to fix things yourself. It's amazing to me that car mechanics get paid so much now, but it's because too few of our young men are learning how to fix cars. They can't work a saw, fix an engine. That's one thing I love about DH. He can fix anything - well -- except puters.
