Default Internet Problems AAAAAHHHHHH!

My phone line has been down since Thursday. ADSL was not availiable and phone crackling and hissing!

It just goes to show how invasive The internet has become in my life.

Couldn't run ROF or COD or Microsoft Flight without it. Steam kept kicking up an error when I tried to run games off line, and ROF wouldn't let me play offline because it needed to up date it self!

I had to spend my weekend working in the garden, playing with the kids and talking to my wife!!!!!!!

Bloody Telstra!!!!!

Gawd listen to these Australians! Here in NZ, thanks to Telecom, we still have wind up telephones and steam powered dial-up. This is our latest iphone

The Telstra contractor came this morning and fixed the phone line.

Unfortunately after six days of "cold-Turkey" I have found that I am cured of my Internet addiction and that I am enjoying Solitare.

Will I ever be able to go online again? The Internet Loss help line says that the scars are deep and may never truely heal!


Cheers!

Just knock back a 1/2 bottle of your favorite liquor. It will heal all wounds.
