    So during the time of reckoning how did you keep yourself busy?

    I went to church and read engadget.

    FYI, anyone can edit their own thread title. ;)

    I was at a fambly get together. It was so nice to see these folks whom I don't usually see.

    And then I slept. Oh oh, and this AM I found more MRers on IM than usual 'cause of MR being down so yeah, I chatted a bit. :D

    Doh! (and of course now that seems so obvious too)...guess my brain was just so mangled by that point that I didn't even think about. :eek:

    This Hard Boiled? Awesome movie...I need to watch that again. I was watching Seven Swords just before Macrumors went down. I love HK movies.

    We had friends visiting so I've not been MacRumormongering over the weekend – God knows what I'd have done had I tried to get on here only to find the forums were down.

    It doesn't even bear thinking about. :eek:

    Pah, you've seen past my cunning ruse. Alright, when the forums went down I spent my time rocking in the corner, sobbing to myself gently.

    Happy now? :p
