Hey everyone, just wondering what you do while you wait for the internet to go back up.

I either

  • Get something to eat
  • Go Swimming (if its not too late)
  • Screw around in Half Life 2

1) Go watch TV
2) Go play PS3
3) Go hang out with friends
4) Sleep
5) Scream at computer until it is fixed
6) Cry because it won't fix
7) Break computer because it isn't working
8) Go out and buy new computer
9) Reinstall steam and all my games
10) Scream at my new computer because it won't work.

You see how this cycle will go.

I'd say why does this happen to me?, And then i remember oh yeah i'm on DSL.

Then it could be down due to a thunderstorm or because it's DSL.

So for the mean time i mess around in photoshop or Sony vegas.

my internet doesnt really just go out so i dont have to do anything while i wait for it "to go back up"

now steam itself on the otherhand

its so annoying

ill be playing css for like an hour or 2

then out of nowhere a steam popup will come up

"steam could not make a connection to the vac secure server"

i dont know why it happens but its super annoying

and once it happens the first time it continues every 5 minutes so i cant even go back to playing css

Mess with some of the 100GB worth of stuff on my PC. Mostly games. When that fails to interest me, mess with one of the consoles or a handheld.

I need to go outside
I troubleshoot and try to get it back up. If that wont work, i go find something else interesting to do depending on what i want to do.

If my internet goes out, the day doesn't go well at all after that.

Red lights all the way home from work, everyone's busy, I end up watching reruns of Friends until I pass out.

  1. Unplug my Wireless Network Switch.
  2. Turn off my pfSense server.
  3. Unplug the Comcast modem.
  4. Wait 30 seconds.
  5. Plug in the Comcast modem.
  6. Turn on my pfSense server.
  7. Reconfigure my pfSense WAN settings.
  8. Plug in my Wireless Network Switch.
  9. Restart all computers.
If it's still not working I call up Comcast as I know it's not my end.

At that point I'll tether a 3G connection off my HTC Incredible if I really need access, but normally it's back up in an hour or two, so I'm fine just waiting. ;)

I realize this probably wasn't what you were asking about, but I'm normally pretty proactive about fixing the problem, so I never find myself in a situation without it... Haha.

1. Realize internet is out-->95% chance that means power is also out.

2. If power is out--Realize that the storm that knocked out your power has 50 mph winds and it's more brigth than dark because of how many lightning strikes there are.

3. Laugh because I'm used to it and she's a brick nananana HOUSE!

4. Hit myself cause of bad pun and go read.

5. Realize that the book is really bad and that the light from the lightning is inconsistant.

6. Eat.

7. Realize that I ate too much.

8. Throw up.

9. Realize because the power is out and I can't flush the toilet.

10. Apply air freshener.

11. Try falling asleep.

12. Realize that thunder is relatively loud.

13. Text people about how much I hate Justin Beiber.

14. Laugh at the fact lightning can't destroy my cell phone reception.

15. Gets bored.

16. Storm ends.

17. Run outside.

18. Realize the wind is still going, slip, fall, and get knocked out for an hour.

19. When you wake up, the power is back on.

20. Repeat.
