Oh my gosh, no internet.

So, you guys, last night when I checked the tubes not for the last time but for the very last time, everything was working fine.  I connected to Safari and my computer hummed like a busy, efficient bee.  Gmail, blog, Huffington--up-to-date and off to bed.  But this morning, the internet has stopped being my friend, as in our friend, and there are all sorts of errors and problems, and failures to connect.  

Failures.  To connect.  As in, my efforts to connect all failed.

Rebooting like a mad woman has done nothing.  I can't even isolate the problem:  the historian's laptop won't connect, not even with the ethernet cable, but I can't connect to singing son's wireless, so what is it? and why this sudden meltdown?  The thought of talking to some probably very hardworking IT guy on the phone to troubleshoot it all makes me simultaneously itchy and weepy and rage-y.  

I am not amused.


  1. There are no worse days than internet cut-offedness. Especially when you have to call the guys. And they tell you they'll have to send someone out. Or send a new modem. And charge you $180. My wish this night is that it was all just a bad Tuesday dream.

  2. I had the same problem earlier tonight. Turned out the solution was to wait it out by playing spider solitaire.

    (I won! Twice!)

  3. Aaaack! Not good! Not goooood! On the other hand: word verification=tickles. Hee hee!

  4. Reset your router by unplugging it and plugging it back in.

  5. No doubt it is a ghost in the machine. Which actually sounds kind of exciting.
    But here you are...does this mean the ghost is fixed? I hope so. We need to have a real, in person connection.
