Cut and down

Well a fiber optic cable or two or three were severed south of Italy and Egypt's internet service was down all day yesterday and super, super slow this morning. My ISP is back to normal now, but i read online many of Egypt's other ISP's are still down.

You know not having the internet for a day really affected me. I know those of you reading this feel me, as you are online now and some of you (eh em) are online all the time, like me!

But the thing that REALLY got me is , look at this technology. A cable in the Mediterranean gets cut and here in Cairo and many other cities in the region have no internet. What an intricate system and something I never give a thought to when i get online, ever.

Anyway, just thought you guys needed to know.

3 days to go, no cheating for me, I am waitin it out. Keep em coming ladies, thanks for all your support, it means the world to me! xoxoxoxox


  1. I hop on and off the internet a million times a day, I HATE it when it's out!!! So I feel ya.

    Crossing everything that crosses for you....

  2. Wow, holding out for the beta. I'm impressed!

  3. I think about it all the in the world did we exist before the internet? It's amazing.

    I am soooooo praying and hoping that this is the one! I can't wait to read the results! Sending you positive vibes chica!!!

  4. Not cheating? Holding out? What the heck is up with that? GAWD, WOMAN! THE SUSPENSE! Just three more days...I, err..YOU can make it! :)

  5. It is preposterous that billions of people's communication relies on one set of cables, and even more preposterous that the cables are so precarious that they can be destroyed by a ship's anchor.

    You, on the other hand, are not at all preposterous! Instead, you are wonderfully patient (among other good things).

    The internet had better be working perfectly when you have beta results to announce to us!

  6. I have no doubt you won't cheat! You are the most strong-willed person I know! Three days is so close...hopefully that internet connection stays good for you!

  7. When I can't get online I actually start to get nervous - like, what's going on out there that I don't know about crazy!!

    Thinking good thoughts for you!!

  8. Whenever my service doesn't pop on right away, I get a little pang of panic. A whole day!?! Don't they know this is a lifeline in the IF world? (-;

    Hope you are hanging in there and that great things happen with your beta in 3 DAYS!!

  9. I'm getting so excited!! :)



  10. Well todays the day. I hope the news is good.

    Thinking of you :)
