Well, I've been quietly watching the **** fly since joining these forums a short time ago. I havn't got involved at all because I'm new both here, and with Xnet.

I have been having issues with my new connection, but that seems to be a wiring issue. So I have nothing to complain about. 

Anyhoo, I finally got my internet working last night after a week of frustrations and I went to watch the latest episode of Southpark (they release to the web after airing on CC).

Ironically for my timing, the entire plot of this episode is involves the internet going down across America and the instant reaction of the characters. I found myself nodding in acceptance a few times and thought of these forums a couple of times in the refugee camp scenes.

If it's your sort of thing, or just want a quick mood lightener, watch it. Just don't try during peak hours obviously, I might be guilty of making things worse. (it's 20 odd minutes). I had to just pause it like a youtube vid and wait for about 30% to load. It only aired a day ago, making demand pretty high too.

Disclaimer: I'm not trying to tell anyone to take it easy. Just trying to lighten the mood round here.
Warning: There are many references to online porn and masterbation, but I'm sure everyone knows what type of humour Southpark is.
