Yes, we have no Internets - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
Yes, we have no Internets
Our ADSL connection developed a fault at 01.42 am on Saturday morning and neither curiouswombat nor I can access the Internet. The engineers don't work weekends and so we've been cut off from the civilised world since then. CW will have to miss her regular Sunday posting of pictures and the next chapter of 'Brotherhood', which is ready and beta-read, can't be posted either. I'm posting this from a dismal café with bad food but free Wi-fi. Hopefully the engineers will restore our access tomorrow.

I truly sympathize - mine went down regularly all through January (for hours at a time and most of each weekend). Hope yours is all sorted out on Monday.

That is a nuisance. Good luck surviving life without the internet.

I feel your pain. Hope it's sorted soon.

Horror! Here's hoping it is quickly resolved.

Good luck for getting it back soon; it's annoying hen it happens (especially when it happens on weekends).

I take it this is island-wide. That sucks. And, for some reason, reminds me of that Steven King short story he patterned on "Night of the Living Dead" about a small Maine island coping with the zombie take-over.

I am sure that zombies will not pose a problem for you, but I will think of you and curious nonetheless. As long as people are thinking of you, you won't be isolated.

No -it was just our house - I'm guessing if it had been island-wide they'd have had the engineers out over the weekend!
