DSL Outage? No Blogging Today
Did it just happen to me? Got up at five this morning and turned on the computer. Couldn't connect to the internet. Rebooted and checked the computer and still couldn't connect. DSL modem showed everything working so I tried connecting using dial- up. Nope. That didn't work, either.
Even tried using the laptop, although at that point I was pretty sure it wasn't a problem on my end and, as I suspected, got nowhere with that.
So what do you do when you wake up and your morning routine is ruined? I needed to wash the dishes and I suppose I could have but I'd have had to turn on the lights to do that. I gave up and about 5:45 went back to bed. Had fun snoozing but finally got up at around 6:45 and gave the internet another try and it was up and running.
Problem at that point was I was two hours behind schedule so I had to condense my computer work schedule. Most important thing each morning is entering my sweepstakes. That takes from 45 minutes to an hour and a half.
Did a brief news check and then zipped through my sweeps. I'm running two hours late. Didn't have time to check out all the blogs or do any lengthy blogging myself and no way I'll be able to fly my morning hour up in Aces High. I need to get to work, especially since the month is almost over.
So, for my blog post today, I'll post something in the spirit of Eric's Sohum Parlance movie posts. See if you agree with what this guy says are the 100 scariest movie scenes. Too bad the guy couldn't have provided video clips of all of them.
I didn't have time to check out more than five or so but I'm sure I could come up with some scarier ones if I gave it some thought.
