  1. Offline Minecraft! Internet was down for 2 days during an ice storm last year. Played the heck out of some minecraft and Bulletstorm on PS3.

    • My cell (Evo3D) offers internet access on its screen and as a modem, should (God forbid) my 20Mbit connection go down (happened for 30 minutes once in the last 2 years).

  2. You forgot…call, page, text, fb, tweet, ping, bbm your local IT guy a thousand times to ask him to fix it.

  3. Sometimes my net break for some hours/days.
    I have two main weapon in my posession:
    1. ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew
    2. plug off the modem and then back after a couple of minutes
    3. plug off the router and then back after a couple of minutes…
    I have three main weapon in my posession…
    1. ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew
    2. plug off the modem and then back after a couple of minutes
    3. plug off the router and then back after a couple of minutes
    4. call internet provider and ask what the hack…
    … damn it…

  4. Is it pedantic to point out that the Internet stays up, it's just your connection to it that becomes unavailable? It always bothers me when people say "my Internet is down" – I usually say "wow, you have your own Internet? I just connect to the one the rest of the world uses."

  5. that is why i wish Diablo 3 has single player offline mode, because I always start a new character and rush to kill blood raven at the lowest level possible.

  6. That's what either a smartphone or a book is for. As long as I have cell signal, I have full internet on my phone. If the towers are down because of a disaster ( like the huge SoCal windstorm we had last winter, only two blocks in the whole city even had power and mine was one of them) then I read a book, or havens forbid, actually talk to my family. I'm a shameless WoW addict, but I have plenty of fantasy fiction to tide me over. If that somehow gets boring, there's always tabletop rpg. That's what geeks DID before internet access was constant…

  7. I personally have copied some of my favorite fanfics into text files so when the Internet goes down I read them and do a lot of work on my own stories.
