DSL is Down
Posted on April 22, 2009 Posted by John Scalzi 9 Comments
Oh noes! My internets are out! I suspect this has something to do with the power being out earlier. I’m writing this on my BlackBerry, which is a real pain in the thumbs. So, I’ll be back when my dsl is back up. Be strong until then.
I love ‘unread onslaught’. That’s when your TBR book stack finally falls over on you, right?
I just go on a neighbor’s open wireless when our cable modem goes out. One of the advantages to living in a city, I suppose.
Also, depending on your cell service, you might want to look into one of those cell-carrier based USB modem stick thingies. T-Mobile charges too much for theirs, otherwise I’d have one.
There’s something amusing about you posting on the Internet that your Internet is down.
What? No picture? I feel cheated!!!!
So wait, no moderation? WOO HOO!!! Whip out the tentacle pr0n and paste it all over the blog!!!
Have you fended off the masses of unread?
What? But I demand to be annoyed by you! Crap. Guess I’ll go bother Abercrombie or Mallozzi or something.
Aww, I wish I could figure out my BlackBerry. All I can do is browse some really lame websites. No cool apps or anything.
Did you have thunder storms around compound Scalzi??
My cable modem and the LAN port of my wireless router were fried a few years ago after a thunder storm. both units would power up, but the Ethernet ports on both devices got zapped.
also most cable companies will let you buy your own cable modem, it saves me 3 bucks a month off my cable bill.
