    I was too. Then I realized we were all scared, each in our own homes. Then I felt that sense of community - we were all in it together - and felt better. :)

    I recommend logging into the Apple store and buying large amounts of equipment you don't need. This has the double benefit in giving you multiple pieces of hardware; you can then create whining threads about each of them and how if Apple continues to treat customers like this, it will surely go out of business, and God help me but Dell would never do this, and so on, and this will last you until the next forum downtime, at which time you can repeat the process.





    The other major option which seems compelling is masturbation.

    I think it was a hardware failure (nic card/cable) - at least that's what my provider thinks. they're looking into it. we're patched up at the moment.

    Sorry to hear, but glad we're up. Things like user queries (http://forums.macrumors.com/member.php?u=31008) worked until we were logged out, even when we couldn't see posts.

    I didn't even notice the server outage. :rolleyes: Since each of my posts is a 1000-word essay, and I spend hours composing each and every sentence, I was busy typing in a text box and editing words the whole time, and the forums were working just fine by the time I finally clicked Submit Reply. ;)
