AHHHHHHHH!

I'm about to set the internet on fire hahaha...

Man - it's just sooooo freaking frustrating trying to work & upload content for work with this crap a-s-s internet connection!

As you all know a submarine crashed into the fiber optic lines somewhere in the sea which totally messed up everyone's connection. And get this, here's the best part; this isn't the first time this scenario of the sub crashing into the fiber optics lines... but this is the freaking THIRD time!

I mean - where / how and who gives these submarine captain(s) their underwater spaceship license?

Feel free to rant on in this thread!

That's why I'm so frustrated cause I really do not understand the logic behind what happened....

Well it's the first time, I never spent xmas without my family back home in Canada... I went to a friend's house and I was with all her family so it was kinda cool but was quite weird at the same time to be in the desert (Dubai) on xmas with no snow... and I wasn't in the mood to go to the refrigerator (Ski Dubai) to see snow :)

What an excellent idea why didn't you. I haven't been there yet. the olny time I saw snow was in Utah years ago it was fantastic, especially when we rolled the ski mobile into some thick deep snow, we nearly P**sed ourselves laughing, but I haven't yet been to the snow fields in Aus

No sunny Australia although its been the mildest summer ever. I wonder if its because I've become aclimatised to Dubai heat. Today was a good one though, should say yesterday 3am here in Sydney. Went to the beach at last, there is nothing so beautiful as the beaches here, and no fences.

I sympathise. I am being driven bonkers by the slow service. At the best of times, the Internet is slow but it is seems to be at a standstill at the mo(any slower and it will stop working completely!!! :rolleyes:). I cannot believe that at 2am in the morning when most people are be sleeping, I am still waiting for Facebook to load (ok, I guess I can live without FB but there are important things that I need to do on the net!) - I've lost count of how many times I've refreshed the page!!! I give up!!!!

Ah you see I don't have any problems there since I always check my facebook on my bold (blackberry) ;)

I won't even try to load FB on my computer cuz it's just so freaking slow.

Get this, yesterday I called up DU and told them that my internet is still super slow and that I need to get it fixed now... cause my neighbor's internet is working perfect... the tech support at DU tells me ok, give us your IP address and we'll have the technicians look into it... so I said; don't you need me to be on the phone with them to try and troubleshoot they said; "nono, they'll call you if they need to do any troubleshooting... but then i said (the smart ass I always am); but what if they call me and I'm not home... hahaha

Customer service or any kind of support in the Dubai & the UAE are completely USELESS and a waste of space! idiots!
