What to do during Internet Blackouts!

Ahh! I just had one, I think I went like 4 hours without the blessed internet! What to do during those frustrating periods?

I actually cleaned my bathroom, did you know my toliet is white? perhaps it was a blessing in disguise... but the pain and suffering i went through while i was offline.

Take a nap. Gotta pile on some sleep hours so that I can stay up later surfing the Net.

when my internet goes out, I go to a friends house in a different county, because I am a loser, and usually log 10 hours or more on the net a day
