Off-line

I lost my Internet connection for about five hours or so, right after I published that last post. It was a very inconvenient time for that to happen. I decided to be brave and work on a little bit more of the floor, and afterwards I basically just have to sit here and wait for stuff to dry.

And then there's no Internet. And of course there won't be anything I want to watch on TV for a few more weeks, and my eyes aren't up to reading at the moment, so those particular five hours without the Internet just seemed really awful.

Why can't the Internet connection go down at a more convenient time?

Why can't the computer refuse to work when my husband is wasting our time together blogging?

Why couldn't the Internet refuse to work the day that the Homewrecking-slut decided to go after my husband?

Why can't the computer just automatically go off-line when it's time for me to go to school or do something more useful? Why does it just have problems when I literally have nothing better to do, or when I actually need to get directions or look something up?

I'm sure it's a conspiracy of somekind.

We got suckered into one of those cable/phone/internet deals.

So, when the cable or internet goes down? Your first inclination is to grab the phone and call the cable company. Oh. can't do that.

I don't know how old you are, but cast your mind back, if you can, to the recent past when we didn't even have computers.

How on earth did we manage??? :-)

That was further back for me than for most people. My dad bought a VIC-20. So we've had computers at least since 1980.
