My household was without internet access for approximately 6 hours yesterday.
Y'all.......the sheer panic. I cannot tell you. It was so bad, I'm speaking North Carolina-speak and I'm from the midwest.
We called out the SWAT team, the Geek Squad, the fire department, my high school freshman detention hall monitor, Tigger, that baby from the eTrade ad, the Nasonex bee, Pinocchio, one of the Real Housewives, Kyle Chandler (yum), and the entire Gonzaga basketball team (except - they were a little busy, getting ready for March Madness and all).
So of course - I was really on hold and answer, hold and answer for about 2.5 hours with the cable company and the 'national' headquarters for Roadrunner. Which apparently, has been moved to Mumbai, where Christopher told me that yes, he's had very pleasant conversations with people like me since "Slumdog Millionare" was released.
And I came back to find that I'm in an Etsy treasury - OTT! It's for the new Etsy team that I joined, the NCTriangle Etsy team - wooo hooooo!!! Check us out!
