    Default My Near Death Experience

    Two days ago it started to rain. Soon after it became freezing rain and transitioned to snow. I worked till 8 p.m. and started to drive home. I only live about 10 miles from home and the drive was brutal.

    But it wasn't the drive that I'm talking about. When I got home I went to my computer and had no internet!!!!!

    My internet connection just got fixed today. I went 40hrs with NO INTERNET ACCESS!!!


    I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE!!!

    How do you know you didn't? You could be lying in a hospital somewhere, your loved ones crowded around your bed...the doctors telling them it's time to turn off the machines, there's no cure for internet withdrawl...

    Hahaha, I went without a computer of my own for a month (the CPU fried) and I went kinda crazy.

    Some ISP's offer a certain amount of 'emergency' dial-up hours you can use. You know you're in tough when you call the that number and talk directly to it without the use of a dial-up modem.

    Christ man, I thought you were gonna tell us you drove your car into a ditch.

    Internet withdrawal is worse, of course.

    I have 7 PC's so at least I usually don't have to worry about one or two or more being down.

    I fell for you mate, I fell for you. I went a full 2 years without the net on my PC. We only had dial up so there was no point of getting a router. Dial is absolutely useless lol, I didn't even use it on dads PC.
