No WOW

Annoyed Librarian has a post today about the IWOW movement/meme thing. IWOW stands for "I work on the web". People are posting pictures of themselves and proclaiming that they work on the web.

I find this all particularly funny because somebody cut University Z’s big fiber cable today. It has been snipped, and we are all squished onto a MUCH lower bandwidth back-up link-amajig, pushing and shoving for our piece of teh internets.

I’m not working on the web. The web has snapped! I am falling! Cyberspace is swallowing me whole. No Bloglines! No gmail! No Desktop Defender! OH NOES!!!!1

No ETA for repair. This entry posted by Morse code.

You make me laugh. The Morse code is great.

I'm glad you liked it, Katya, and thanks for the sympathy Woeful.

I should've linked to this in the post. This is the morse code generator that I used.

*SNORK!* Our library has had its cable sliced twice this year (don't ask me why, no one seems really know, I say it's alien conspiracy). The staff went into Internet withdrawal. Cold turkey. We didn't even have a slower bandwidth to take the edge off.

Anon, I'm glad I made you snork and you have my sympathy about the no internet. I was going pretty crazy with the low bandwidth. I would have probably gone completely mental if I had no internet access.
