Perhaps it should be titled, The Internet Foolies.
Ok, I'm 3 for 3. A few months ago, I downloaded a pool game onto my Iphone and I'm somewhat addicted to it. The only problem with the game is that it's immensely popular and a consequence of that is that the games server overloads occasionally. That, in and
of itself isn't much of a problem unless of course you happen to be in the middle of game 3 of an all-in proposition.
Sigh, of course, my screen freeze (please wait while the server blah blah blah) doesn't mean that my opponents screen was freezing and of course once I got the darn thing up again, my token account was empty. I was winning handily too! To my opponent I would
have appeared to have just abandoned the game.
Last night, I was writng a letter to someone I haven't written to in a very long time. As you can imagine the letter got a tad voluminous and I took a break a few books in, opened another browser and surfed the net for a bit. At some point, trying to back out
of some MSN mess, my screen froze on my PC. Of course I did my best to close the browser and eventually I succeeded only to remember that I'd spent an hour writng an email that was open on another tab on that browser....that I just succeeded in closing....
A horse walks into a bar and sits down, grumblingly orders a bottle of bourbon. The bartender looks at him with some sympathy and says, "Hey Pal, why the long face?"
This morning I added a comment to a news article. It wasn't particularly long, nor important. Nonetheless when I hit submit, I got a screen telling me that the Bell Server was currently experiencing some issues, like Error 404, please try agin later. OH NO!
Not Error 404....(whatever that is) sigh.
I think I need to make some fudge, this despite my earnest efforts to cut down on my sugar intake. Can you tell I have a day off? (PS, you better believe I just copied and saved this blog)
