  • Internet Withdrawal (What to do?)

    So, I moved into my apartment at Grad School. After uncountless bad luck experiences (i.e. my bank is not here, I can't get a parking permit for a week (so I have to feed a meter 24/7,) my loveseat didn't fit up the stairs to my apartment, My fridge smells like old tuna fish, and so much more), the greatest spell hit me. My apartment comes with free internet and cable! Unfortunately, it does not get installed until July 4th. So, unless I am on campus or sitting at a Starbucks stealing the internet from the person who lives above it, I'm screwed with no internet OR cable.

    Now, Bloomsburg (the only TOWN in PA, and they definitely let you know that loud and clear,) is something out of Back To The Future. Everything closes at 9:00 PM, even the Starbucks. The only chains here are Starbucks, Subway and Quiznos, everything else is Mom & Pop shops (even the hardware store that closes at 7, 6 on Sundays).

    So, yeah, I'm pulling my hair out with nothing to do for a week. I'm done unpacking, and I'll soon exhaust my non-Live XBox opportunities. So my question is What to do? What can I do instead? Is there any way to siphon out internet some pre-paid way? I stole someone's random internet for 5 minutes today in my apartment, but past that, I am crying at night. Help an old friend out!

        If you are really, really desperate for internet and have a phone line, you can always just use dial-up.

          I would start by cleaning the fridge. Nothing worse than nasty tuna fish.

              I have no phone, only use my cell.

              And the fridge smell was cause it was turned off for so long and the last guy was nasty. I've cleaned it twice and put in some baking soda.

              I have my case of beer which will be cracked tonight, and I imagine I'll make it my 6th time through the whole West Wing series this week.

              I know AT&T promoted those wireless internet attachments and crap. Is there any type of prepaid cell phone internet card thingy?

                    What kind? Also, go buy season 1 of 30 Rock. Definitely worth it since you cannot download it.

                      Well if it were me, I like to read, so I'd get a good novel, or stock up on fitness magazines and fantasy football magazines, those keep me occupied for hours at nite when my College aptmnt lost the internet for a week.


                      But I do have a laptop with wireless internet when I'm in certain zones, so that helps taking that with me and hoping I get a connection...Thats why I love having one instead of a computer even though you don't have the same type of space.

                        I'm going to be doing so much reading for Grad. School, I think I'll hold off for now. But worst case, I have a good one in "The Last Lecture" handy.

                        And yeah, luckily the laptop has let me on now. It's just tough since I'm organizing three FF leagues, starting school, and more.

                            Stealing other people's WiFi is a time honored tradition. Beyond that, I heartily endorse alcohol and other substances, which tends to lead into some other sort of entertainment (or incarceration).

                            is an awesome and impossible word and I salute you for inventing it.

                              I agree completely with PMD. Eat some mushrooms or something.
