Is six days too long. Seriously, we had no internet at home from Wednesday evening to Sunday afternoon. We could check web-based email and read the news at work, but after 5pm we had nothing. Thank goodness the cable still worked, otherwise it would have been Very Bad. We did discover though that we could hook up one of the laptops to the cable box, and record stuff off the DVR and clear out some space. There is no need to keep a whole hour of a certain program if I only want to keep a 5 minute segment. Technology is cool! If you should receive a DVD in the mail from us, it's because we yanked it off the DVR and wanted to share it with you.
But we had a good weekend despite that. And finally by the time the internet was back up, all we wanted to do was check email and Alison's progress. Don't forget to keep her in your prayers, please.
