Hi, I'm Ms Angie and I'm addicted to Topix.

LOL, ok, seriously though, I know there are some of us that spend a decent amount of time discussing current events and issues here on this site. Just wondering what you guys did to pass the time while Topix was broken?

Clicked the refresh button...over and over and over and over....

Just kidding, I must not be an addict yet. Didn't phase me too much, although I was glad to see it working this morning.

Might be a good lesson to those who really are hooked on this stuff. Seems trivial but even an addiction to chats can be dangerous.

Post really long posts, only to find out that Topix won't take them.

I posted the same comment over and over, not just on this site, but others as well.

Pj, I threw out 3 or so posts before it got old. Then I read some news stuff, which only exacerbated my problem, because then I wanted to comment on Topix. lol

After that I would only check in about once an hour in hopes that it'd be back up and running. I have to admit I was relieved to see it back up this morning.

Off topic and childish, but...my number to type in on this post is 6969. Thought I'd share for the helll of it.

Why thank you, I myself am extremely excited. I'd like to thank you pj, and of course Allegan Redneck...oh gosh, who am I forgetting?

I guess though, due to the economic downturn I'll have to supply my own balloons and confetti for the celebration?

Thanks for the update, Ms Angie, I've been away for a week or so. I'd tell you where I've been, but I'm too aloof to say. ;-)

It doesn't matter anyway, right? Cool people go to cool places, do cool things and they're so cool they don't even have to tell people. They just know.

Gosh thanks...

What did I do? Well, I noticed there was one poster who's comments were showing up every minute or so, instead of '5 hours ago'. He seemed like kind of a nutcase so I started commenting back; you know, just to rile his feathers? After a few hours I realized I was arguing with myself...

I don't post very often at when I'm at work- too busy. Sometimes I'll post on my lunch hour whenever I take it, like now. It was disappointing to see the problem still there though, when I got home from work. Anyone heard what the issue is/was?

I think the problem was the internet,
and since Al Gore invented the internet, he is busy working to fix it.
