So, as the title says what do u usually do when you have to wait a lot of time to open a web page?

recently I don't know why but I have a really slow connection and that is really getting on my nerves! >=( >=( >=(
I'm not usually getting nervous over small things, but this....
I even had to wait 4 minutes to download a scan! 4 minutes! this is very annoying when I'm used to d/l images instantly!


so what do u people do when u have issues with the net connection?

I swear mostly...especially because I have cable hookup. I normally end up closing the browser window and reopening it.
In the meantime, I play games and/or start cleaning the pc's memory.

for some reason this site can be slow sometimes. when i get slow and stuff, i usually open up a video on the side of my browser and just wait it out. at least its better then not having any connection at all.

If it's really that slow, then I won't even bother trying. However, if it's not impossibly sluggish, then I usually listen to some music or play a game or something.

Sometimes it's not your connection that has the problem. Occasionally it's the server that you're downloading from which is causing the slow speed.

When I wait for something to load (be it a game, webpage, image etc.) I usually do something else. Such as chatting on MSN, on another forum, making images etc. .

Some people may say that your cup may be half-full, some may say that it is half-empty. But I say, are you gonna drink it or not?

hahahaha for me. Like some of you. curse how stuip he (talking to my computer) is. Then leaven for a while (30 second) come back and try it again. Again, didn't work. I curse at it even more. Keep doing that for a hour or so. Then watch my anime collection or read my manga. Later come back and curse if the connect is still slow or not working. Pretty much what I do until it work. Even I do have cable connection. Even so, sometime the site you want to run. Doesn't go through. You know what I mean.

I get nervous and start to pound the keyboard ^_^' Then I realize it's not the poor keyboard's fault. Next I start to swear (loudly if I'm alone and mutter if my parents are home X-P). After that I check the modem, turn off the computer, unplug the modem and wait for a few moments (by "wait" I mean walking around the house yelling at any innocent by passer happening to get on my nerves). Then I plug the modem, turn on the computer and if it still doesn't work I kick it a few times.

Hope you had fun reading! So ends my adventure with the oh-so-troublesome-internet-connection!

(Luckily it doesn't happen too often ) XD

If you can't handle me at my best, then you don't deserve me at my worst!

First, I cuss out my cousin. Most of the time, when she's online, she has so many things running at once, it basically kills the connection for anyone else.

Second, I just shut off the computer and go do some stuff. There's more to life than just the net.
