I have no internet and I must post

Line down, we think. Probably one of those lush willows lining our drive ate our cable. BT says it could be Wednesday.

I have a small phone data allowance. Any idea how crazy this is making me?!

Yes, Stoatie, I do believe I know how crazy this is making you. I would rather do without whiskey than without a decent broadband connection!

But only for a few days…

Well, if it’s any comfort, you can’t be any crazier than

So…you don’t get internet back by Wednesday or is the outage caused by Wednesday?

Hope you get back online soon.
I know what it is like. Power outage is a common thing here. Every time the wind blows it seems like the electricity goes off.

And the ISP will never rebate your loss either. If I demanded a refund (and got it) every time my ISP went out, I’d have a sweet nest egg.

Just so long as you have it back by that very important day in July.

You know…THAT day, the day we promised we’d give them Kim Carcrashian for their very own if they’ll take us back into the Empire.

@Deborah…outage credits depend on who carries the cable to your home…if the line goes out and they aren’t the physical carrier then they have no obligation to refund.

Stoatie..can you purchase additional data megs? My cellphone provider sells increments on demand. When our telco broadband carrier had a major cable cut I bought blocks of data as we needed to run a hot spot…it wasn’t all that expensive either.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
