MIA

This blog has been quiet for a while, which has mainly been due to me not playing so much WoW – and therefore not having much to write about. My WoW playing was picking back up again though, and I was enjoying the pre-expansion event… When everything was brought to a screeching halt.

This past weekend I moved, and as it turns out – the place where I now live is without internet. Not only that, but no ISP that I’ve contacted is able to provide any access at that address. Being out in the countryside, I can’t even get a decent mobile internet connection.

Which means I’m stuck with no internet, and unless something miraculous happens, I won’t be able to play in the expansion. Which sucks. I was finally starting to look forward to it again!

It’s very frustrating.

In any case, that means that this blog will remain silent for a while longer. They’re working on fiber in my area, but judging from surrounding areas – that could take anywhere between three weeks and three years. I’m hoping it will be soon, but there’s no way of knowing.

So for now, I will be MIA. I hope that everyone else will enjoy the expansion! I will envy you every step you take on Draenor…

If you want to keep track of what I’m doing with no internet, I will still update my personal blog from time to time.

  1. Me and Mrs G learned long ago to check network connectivity options before anything else. I mean, ANYTHING. Because, priorities.

    (Granted ours are not everybody else’s, though if I had the option to live in the country and do my job, I’d take it in a hot minute even if it killed my internetting for good.)

    There used to be a company that offered satellite internet. Maybe Dish, maybe one of their competitors, can’t remember clearly. But that might be an option for you. I know one of my guild’s raiders used it, though it was fairly laggy. Still, he tanked like friggin’ Spartacus on that connection, so there’s that.

    • In my country I’ve never heard of internet connectivity being an issue before, so it wasn’t something we even thought about. The worst case scenario we’ve ever encountered is that “all” you could get was ADSL through the phone lines. So it wasn’t something we even considered to be a possible issue. It’s the first time I’ve ever encountered this issue, or heard about this issue. They just ran out of slots in the network station apparently.

      I can’t find anyone here that does satellite internet anymore, but I managed to find some mobile connection that’s awful – but at least it gets me online. Even if my ms ranges from 150 – 4000 *lol*
