Time : About 3am
While waiting for a game of Supreme Commander to get going Rob's CM light goes out. Figuring it was just maintaince work our hero wasn't too fussed.
3h later it still wasn't back, however our hero still wasn't too fussed.
At 9am, after only 2h sleep, our hero is woken by his dad on the phone with NTL, they try to blame it on us, I refrain from swearing and go back to bed.
3pm still dead, 3:30pm engineer arranged... for between 12pm and 6pm monday.
The next 4 days are spent pretty much internet-less.
The first night wasn't a problem as our hero did what anyone would do; go out and get drunk [grin]
The rest of the weekend was spent using my phone to get onto myspace to continue a conversation I'd been having before things went crashy before an Oluseyi look-a-like turned up today, declared the cable modem dead, pulls out a new one and we're back on line.
Of course, like any self respecting internet deprived person at this point I did the only thing you could do; said 'meh' and went back to bed...
What? I hadn't slept much and I'm out tonight and I'd like to be slightly awake before I start having to drink caffine like a bastid [smile]
Still, got to play plenty of Neverwinter Nights 2 (Paladin for the win!) and did a tiny bit of coding (thank god for off line Win32 docs)... but mostly it was play NWN2 [grin]
In other news, my FBO101 article has been well recieved which is always good to see when you return to the world of the data dependant [smile]
Of course, now I'm back online I'm starting to think maybe the off-line time was a good thing *chuckles* but never mind [grin]
