jebra tells me that trouble with our internet connection has been traced to a broken line in a building somewhere. If I understood correctly, the building is one of the telephone company's central offices. As technicians were working on locating the break last night, I had rather assumed we'd have restored when I woke up this morning. No, 100% packet loss when I tried to ping our domain a few minutes ago. *sigh*

I miss y'all terribly.

I miss you, too! I'm going through Audrey withdrawal. Hope it's back up soon. *hugs*

I'm trying.

And, y'know, I *knew* I was an internet addict, but being without the net is even more annoying than I'd considered. It's not just getting my fix of fanfic and news about my friends -- it's a matter of looking things up. Last night I was watching an old episode of Diagnosis Murder and wanted to look up the cast. Couldn't. Not being able to google and to use dictionary.com bothers me so much that I even dreamt about it last night.

Yeah, I hear ya'. I think this was before you friended me so you may not know, but earlier this year, just around New Years, we had a major computer crash at home, not just internet but the whole computer was dead for days, and it was a Real Big Pain.

You do that, too? I look up cast lists a lot. Either J or I will say "Isn't that - - " or "Wasn't he on - - " or "Whatever happened to - - ", and I'm off to IMDb or TV.com.
