Oh boy, I'm such a geek, that would really bother me. What did you do with yourself for four days? :lol:

Oh my gosh. How did you fill the time? Not.............housework???????

I had to replace my computer a few months ago and my daughter had to remind me my best friend hadn't really died.

Welcome back!

That happened to me in April and I really hated it. I feel your pain. I was without for a week and I just didn't know what to do with myself. What did we do back in the day, before the internet? It's mind boggling.

OH NO!! That's horrific!!

Back at the end of February, my internet started acting weird. It would only load pages after 5 or 6 times of refreshing. My ISP said that it wasn't their issue, but something wrong with my computer. We had 3 people look at it and they all said my comp. was fine so after a MONTH I finally called the ISP back & they sent someone out (at my cost if it was something wrong w/my computer :rollseyes: ). Turned out it was *their* wiring that was messing me up. I was so happy to be able to get back online!!

Glad you got yours fixed so quickly. I don't know what I'd do if that happened to me. Probably commit computercide. ;)

My internet has died before like that. I just went to the library and used the internet there.
