Tell me about it. If my cable modem goes out, my house is soon filled with mutterings and rantings of "son of a bitch" and "GOD DAMMIT!"

If it goes on too long, I find myself twitching from withdrawal. Especially if my girlfriend (deployed in Afghanistan) is online, and the !@%&ing cable is out! (>_<)

I've lost the internet a few times. Each time it sort of sucked for a while... but then I started going back to my pre-internet habits. Jogging, tennis, inline-skating, visiting libraries, reading manga, watching TV, the things I did before I started wasting most of my life online.

And oddly enough, each time I regained my internet it took me a while to get back into spending all my free time on it again.

i lost internet for two weeks a while ago (due to an utter failure of my old fiscal policy)

the weird thing is that it took me no time to adjust, i read a bit more, hung out at cafes a lot more, watched a bit of tv, etc.
but on the whole just lived a life that was virtually identical to mine now

now, you people may ask yourselves what this is doing in i.a.a., the answer is that i've clocked a cool 16 hours of slacking off in front of the computer today, so, it's weird

I can't sleep if I haven't used the internet recently. I tried to go to sleep early tonight but failed. Now I am hoping the internet will help me sleep.

You will soon evolve into a content creator. Pirate Flash and start making movies. Or use the GIMP.

Either that or you will continue to do nothing all day long. But you certainly won't be quitting, nobody has that kind of willpower.

I guess that would make the discovery of this bbs(or another similar) into another stage before either giving up on the internet or moving on. Like an Oasis. Thats also why I like this place. :)

The worst thing is, my chair is really uncomfortable and I still sit on it and internet.

I don't think I will ever be a content creator. I am too afraid of being critisized -- I can't even post text without being like that. Being anonymous is grate.

20 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-01-22 18:04 ID:bGk+7Jo3

Create content anonymously?

21 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-01-22 20:07 ID:3Q+RnIrw

Sounds like a plan.

22 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-01-22 21:23 ID:eKbkU1MA

Somehow I am more attached to pictures and them moving than words. Really I had never even thought about creating content not anonymously -- that would be too much. It would be like people being able to see inside me or read my mind. I might as well pirate Flash and see lol.

23 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-01-22 23:50 ID:bGk+7Jo3

Who cares if you get criticised anonymously? That's the best possible thing: You can use the criticism to improve, but it doesn't damage your reputation because no one will know that your next work is by the same guy.

I find having someone else around when I'm surfing the internet bad too. Then I can't surf sites that might contain offending or adult stuff. I'm not so confortable with people seeing where I post. I usually just end up (re)reading news sites, or wikipedia.

46 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-05-02 15:07 ID:Heaven

Yeah, that really sucks. I often feel that I can't concentrate on surfing when another person is around, it's not just having to avoid special sites either, it's just really distracting

I took a 2 weeks vacation from my job, with the usual intent of wasting all day posting, downloading anime and playing online... only to discover that on the first day of vacation my ADSL was suspended because my father didn't pay the bills.
Baka me, if I hadn't logged off for the first time in weeks (it's usually always connected up/downloading warez) the connection would have stayed alive (stupid ISP had blocked my user without killing the conn).
Fortunately I managed to get the damn line back up just in time (the stash of animes I keep on disk unwatched for emergencies.. was almost finished.. and no good games to play offline... ahhhh omg I could have died.. panic!!!)

I just arrived at work and found my computer was gone because of a move. I ended up finding the room where all the computers are stored in the meantime, and borrowing one that some other guys had connected up in the meanwhile.

So now I'm sitting in a big room full of powered-down computers, using someone else's machine to post to IAA.

I'm still wondering how did I live my life before the advent of internet? Nowadays I can easily say that I can't live without internet.

52 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-07-23 18:54 ID:DBotbvi1

I started using the internet at age 10, though it was innocent then. I would mainly just look at websites about cars. I started posting in forums (gameshark.com lol) when I was 11. Somehow, over the years, I found myself more and more addicted to the internet. I can do alright without the internet. I just play console games and hang out with people more than I usually do. It gets a bit annoying after a week though. I was actually on vacation this past week at a place near the beach. Our condo didn't have any internet connection, but you could sort of pick up unprotected networks nearby. It was too much of a hassle to try and use them at first, but by the last night I was hopping different networks until I found one that worked alright and spent hours downloading hentai and porn form 4chan and iichan.

My internet went down for two hours this morning. I went freakin crazy. I actually watched TV I was so bored. I started playing an old Playstation game then finally called around to find a relative willing to call New York long distance to tell the management company (why they're in New York baffles me, I'm in the midwest) that the internet was down so they could get it fixed.

I go through serious withdrawl. I can live, sure, when I go away on vacation and such for two weeks, etc, but at home, if it's not on, I feel like I NEED it on. I can fuction for a while, but the knowledge of the absence of it makes me go nuts...

Without it I'm reduced to watched TV or indulging in hobbies more. But after a while, it's sooo depressing.
My mother says I act like a drug addict without her drugs when the internet is gone. Omg.

...Saddest thing last year was when my computer broke down. Was without the net for a week. ;__;

I actually feel MUCH better when the internet is cut off for me (unless I have school work to do and I need the internet). Other than that I feel like I am free from a burden and I am free to do whatever I want. If I have teh internet connection though, I tend to just sit in front of the computer, I can't help it.

Without internet I'd have nothing to do but revise for my exams, watch TV, play video games and listen to music. Even stuff like having a go at instruments I have lying around the house (keyboard and guitar) is hard because normally the internet's where I'd get the learning materials from.

But generally, as someone who only leaves the house to go to college (like, literally, that's not some wannabe-hermit exaggeration), no internet would either mean drastic changes in my life or a massive hole in it.

Without the internet, I become lost. I tend to revert to watching anime I have on disc and reading the same manga over and over, before finally just staring out the window for hours.
The real world is so very dull. All I have are exams, chores and my dog to play with. Nothing as exciting as the ideas I can find on the internet.

69 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2008-06-20 00:15 ID:FKxbguyS

Without Internet I would run out of anime to watch and games to play pretty soon. (Really soon considering I'm a NEET, and I can marathon if I feel like it)

Then I'd buy more until I run out of money.

And only then I'd off myself.
