Winter has arrived in Hawaii, marked by torrential rains, big waves, flash flood warnings, and more importantly...
by Internet outages (caused by torrential rains...)
My Roadrunner connection has now been officially out for 6 hours. Despite the fact that my digital cable is alive and well... despite the fact that there are at least 5 live connections in the area (because I can see their wireless networks), *MY* beloved Internet connection is down.
And that has forced me to do the unthinkable. Piggy back off of someone else's wireless. The connection is weak. I can't even watch YouTube videos.
But I can blog. And chat.
And that keeps me sane.
Of course, I should really be doing more productive things instead of stealing other people's life blood, I mean, Internet connection.
I should really be... cleaning. Or something. But that would be the responsible thing to do.
I called Oceanic to check on timing. They've apparently already fixed the majority of the island's Internet. It's really just mine that's left. But of course, that's according to a recording that was up-to-date about an hour ago. No live people to talk to, so they could be lying, and I would never know because I can't press anyone for information.
I guess I'll just have to continue to be a virtual vampire until further notice.
