What Will I Do?

My worst fear has come to life... I AM WITHOUT INTERNET! I have suspected that this day was coming as I have been losing my connection dozens of times daily for the last couple of weeks. The Telus tech just confirmed that, yes, my modem has kicked the bucket. AND IT WILL TAKE 5-7 BUSINESS DAYS FOR THEM TO SEND ME A NEW ONE!

What will I do?

Bootleg off the neighbors of course... that's what I'm doing right now! But in all honesty, I'm not very comfortable doing it. Who knows what kind of virus I might pick up or if someone will now be able to hack into my computer from afar. So I may not be around much for the next week or so. I'll try to check in when I can, but if you don't hear from me... you'll know why!

Now, let's just hope that I don't go completely crazy while I'm waiting for the new modem to get here...

Aren't computers wonderful when they work but when they don't it reminds us how much we depend on the computer.
Hope you get it fixed soon!

Oh my, that hurts doesn't it? I'll check Hallmark for some "sorry your modem died" cards. My sympathy is with you... hope you are up and runnin' soon. Tragedy, really.

We have been doing the same things...bootlegging off someone else's until we can get ours up and running. I hope you get back up & running quickly!

You poor thing! I only have internet at work. Now, when I'm on maternity leave, I'll be getting it at home for sure.

If you're just tapping into their wireless signal, you can't catch any viruses that way. Go for it gal! We don't want to miss you for a whole week!

Sorry about your internet. I had that happen about 2 weeks ago. I had to walk about 1/4 mile up a hill and stand in the weeds to get a cell-signal on my phone just to check email. Blogging was out of the question, so had to do it from WORK! ha ha ha

Oh I feel your pain!!

My wireless keeps cutting in/out/in/out/in/out and I have to time my posts etc to when it is on. Takes me twice as long to do stuff. :(

I was just thinking "I haven't heard from Docta'mama today!" then I meandered over and remembered your internet dilemma! :(

OMG it's the end of the world! I can make it for about a day but after that I'm just no good. I'd self-destruct. EGADS!
