A.net Addicts And Maniacs

Fri Oct 03, 2003 4:09 am

Airliners.net was down for a few hours. Those four hours were hell. I was logging in every 5-10 minutes. I guess I really needed my dose of a.net

How often were you trying to access the site to see if it was working?

I only check 2 or 3 times a day. Usually in the morning, after school, and evening. I don't need A.net like alot of you do.

Yeah and after saying that, I had no idea it was down either. And if I did, I probably wouldn't pay much mind.

I tried to get on probably 5 times while doing other things online, no not that. Actually I was buying tickets to go to SFO in January and hotels etc.

I was also pricing going to London and Zurich for spring break. Two weeks off what can I do.

I was in the same boat as you. I was going out of my tree!

Then again, it's because I'm at work, and it's one of the only sites that isn't blocked by our network. You can only read the CNN.com and other news sites so often, y'know!

Well, I tried to get in all the time, not that it's a habit, but I'm sick at the moment and I spend much time on the internet.

I would imagine all our US friends were calling their therapists.

I, too, didn't notice the downtime.

Piss off Delboy! Not all of us Yanks are addicts to some god foresaken aviation website! SOME of us actually do have lives with issues that hold priority over Airliners.net.

I think Johan should, on purpose, have some downtime just so some of these people can step away from their computer and see some daylight for once.
