Now What Do We Do?

Boy, I'm bored! Since EntreCard went down in "The Planet" fire, I just have nada to do. Like the two gentlemen to the right, I'm just "Waiting For Godot". Can you imagine what the truly serious 'Carders are doing right now? Some of them are probably noticing for the first time that their Significant Others have departed, having taken the TV set and the cat [that last was a kindness to the animal, of course; YOU weren't going to think to feed it, never mind cleaning the litter box...
For serious blog readers, on the other hand, this could be a brief, but brilliant Golden Age; after all, without Cards to worry about, bloggers may actually WRITE, concentrating on their posts [sadly, that doesn't seem to apply here].
It's a shame we didn't know the outage was coming sooner. We could have thrown together a Blog Carnival, with an "Iron Chef" format [topic not revealed 'til the competition begins. 24-hour time limit for entries. If someone DOES pull one together, please let us know].
Thank the good Lord it's just an EC outage. Can you imagine what we'd have to do without computers for a WHOLE DAY [oh wait, we've done that already this year]?
Has anyone started a pool to predict the day and hour the EC machine begins again [let's face it, a lot of us have credits burning a hole in our metaphorical pockets. By the bye, what ELSE do you keep in your metaphorical pocket?]?
Godot? Is that you? Please? Help?

My computer is going through a slow period. I have checked to see if Windows has suddenly decided to download updates, checked that there isn't some virus and made sure it's actually physically connected still even. But it is still crawling along. Really aggravating to wait and wait and wait... It reminds me of being connected wtih 14 speed dial up like in 1996. Urrggggghhh! I will probably reformat as it must be a sign of some garbage using my connection.

I didn't even noticed EC was down over the weekend. I was not online at all. Visiting my sister and family instead.

Fortunately, it looks like Entrecard is back up and functioning pretty well now, so it seems that the outage has simply given us a one-day vacation from our dropping routines. For me this was a welcome break because I managed to log in shortly after the site came back online and was able to scoop up some relatively inexpensive advertising deals.

I must have no life outsaide my blogs [what's scary is that I thought most bloggers live that way. I've got to do all this blogging, 'Carding, AND have a life?]. And EC Fan, glad your timing was good. Thanks to Laura and yourself for visiting...

Hi Mike, FINALLY! Entrecard is up and running! I hope this will never happen again, ever.
