Can you live without internet?

Princess' internet has been down for a while, so she hasn't been able to get onto radio-pro.ru. She just wants y'all to know she didn't disappear and isn't ignoring us But she's going crazy right about now without her internet So can you live without internet? What do you do when your internet goes down?

I think I can. Before, it was tough but now that I have so much homework during the school year and don't have enough time, I'll always find something that I could do

Big NO for me...sure I can go driving, play some games, etc however after a while I need to go online and read a few things, talk on msn, send/receive email, etc. Gas is too expensive to be constantly driving anyhow...lol.

I remember when the eastern seaboard was blacked out a few years back my stupid ISP didn't have their system restored for 25 days...that was insanely rough. I think I probably clocked about an extra 1-2 hours a day after my reg work hours just so I could surf the net for a while.

I also have things set up now so I can watch things I download on my big screen tv so if I were to go without Internet for an extended time now things would probably be even worse for me...lol.

No. We are more and more connected these days. Without the internet, I'd actually have to write a check and get stamps to pay my bills. Can you imagine the burden that would be??

We were down for 24 hours, up for about an hour, down again for several hours......

No internet is just not a good thing for me!!! I do about 80% of my shopping via the net. I keep in touch with family (including y'all) via the net. I get news vis the net. I just plain occupy my down time via the net!!! I admit it, I'm adicted!!

I'm always busy, but I work the net time into my life quite nicely!! Technically I could live without it.... but I'm saving gas, trees, my car, my shoes, etc. Hey, the UPS guy has to deliver anyway. His gas & shoes don't count!!

It's been a VERY long couple of days. They're supposed to come & check it out on Monday....if it's still giving us fits. I think it's them, not us.

He had the laptop with him..... the phone doesn't get DA...... life was seriously coming up nasty today!!

I finally have it & now it's time for bed.....G'nite!!!

I could, but I must admit it's a tough habit to break.

At home I try to stay offline though. I mostly use the net at home for posting photos and paying bills.

I work with computers and internet access all day.. our school sites all have internet, they are linked to us via 50mb fiber & are redundant to each other with fiber in between as well as microwave links at select sites beamed to our district office, where we have two routers that both run seperate (in seperate trenches as well) 1 gig fiber links to our network operations center where we access the net at 155mbps (primary) and 40mbps (secondary)

at home I have 8 meg comcast.. it sucks when the power goes out, i'm like "well I can't chat but I can check my emai... oh damn"

no internet = no life for me

also no job... hehe
