Not getting my five a day!!!

We are advised that we should have five portions of fruit or veg per day to remain healthy.  Well, I’m definitely lacking one bit of fruit at the moment….

What is going on??? Blackberry DOWN???

I went to London on Monday for an overnight stay – a two day conference.  Great, I thought, this is where the BB comes into its own.  Not only can I use the map facility to find my way around, I can also Facebook when I get bored in the conference…..As well as check emails and all that stuff BB’s are good for

NORMALLY

Typically, Blackberry chose this time to crash.  I didn’t know this until I got home, not having access to the news (ON ACCOUNT OF BLACKBERRY BEING DOWN!) so I spent half my time fiddling with my phone, trying to work out whether it was a Facebook issue or a network provider issue (never dreaming it would be a BLACKBERRY issue!) and eventually giving up and feeling very isolated

Not to mention LOST.  I was relying on that location finder!!

Anyway, it is still not working and now, on top of all that, my workplace have decided to introduce some new system that means they read every single email in detail before sending it out.  They don’t really but they might as well be, the amount of time delivery is taking!

Unless they are all in it together

You don’t realise how much you rely on instant communication until it isn’t there anymore, do you?

Virtual footprints

2 Comments

We hear a lot about carbon footprints these days but what about virtual footprints?

I’ve just signed up to another site which requires a username and password 

I was thinking how many websites or email accounts I have subscribed to or created in my years of internet surfing 

I don’t think I could count how many places I have signed up to, there are so many 

I have three Yahoo accounts, two Hotmail addresses, and various other defunct ones that I stopped using for one reason or another 

Not to mention blogging sites, shopping sites, Facebook, Twitter, LOADS of dating sites that I no longer go on and, oh the list is endless……

I know I have joined places, created handles and then forgotten all about them.  But my username, or account, is probably still there, floating about in the ether….

I’m surprised the internet is still working, the amount of handles of mine there are out there

I bet you are the same

I swear that’s why it is slow sometimes.   The internet is almost full up!!!

Imagine if that happens?  Imagine if the internet became full?

We’d have to go back to using pen and paper, snail mail, using the phone – TALKING!!!

I don’t think I could cope!
