    My phone line went dead Saturday morning Dec 18th ... that meant no internet!

    Called my ISP, they tested and said it was the phone line . Sooooo .... I called 611 ... Repair said they would be out on Monday.

    OK ... I can live with only my cell, but no internet.

    Monday afternoon, I get a call "Sorry but we are running behind because of the storm, but will be at your place on Tuesday between 8am and 5pm.

    Tuesday ... no body ... Wednesday ... again nobody. Thursday I call "Sorry, but we are still behind because of the storm, will try to get out sometime today but if not, you will be the 1st on Friday!" No such luck!

    Finally ... repairman shows up late Sunday afternoon!

    Yipeeeee! Got internet again!

    So ....... a belated Merry Christmas to all of you and yours!

    Ahab, I too experienced the symptoms of Internet Withdrawal Syndrome when my computer went down. I scurried over to the public library, signed up for a library card, and logged on to TS.com while my hands were shaking and sweat was dripping off my brow. LOL. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Thats why I like my Blackberry. Internet and email 24 - 7 no matter where I am. The wife is on it constantly when we travel. It is better than a DVD player in the car. We live in Idaho so it is possible to be in the mountains and lose a signal but not for long. Don't know what I did without it, better than a microwave
