    I have been unable to get on the internet for about 24 hours. Here's how I spent my time:

    6 hours phoning up ISP to find out what was going on (5 of these hours where wasted listening to a recorded message...).

    8 hours staring forlornly at the modem waiting for my connection to come back.

    6 hours asleep dreaming of the time when I had an internet connection.

    4 hours pacing around the house trying to remember what I used to do before I had the internet.

    So my question is what do you do when you can't get online?

    ps Yes, I'm aware that I should probably get a life...

    somehow i feel cheated i only have a half meg connection and whilst on the phone today to my ISP they said they had no plans to upgrade for the next 18 months!!!

    one of the benfits of living in the middle of nowhere i guess...
