Well, the internet for the whole state of Texas is down, if anyone is curious… :)

I'm only online because my workplace (a major cable company) was able to find alternate means to get online.

Really? Mine is working just fine…

Then again, I use Cable internet.

EDIT: On a side note, Youtube seems to be failing me…

Your ISP might be on a different backbone or router that isn't impacted.

I also hear some people can do email but not webpages.

It's pretty bizarre.

When I wrote the subject line, I thought it was only an hour but the company I work for re-routed to another state to get internet back. Many others are still down.

Latest update: I just learned a fiber line in San Antonio got cut and that is the source of the problem. Still no ETA, although apparently some service is starting to be restored in some areas. So the worst may be over.

This might not be appropriate, but I heard Texas is the fattest state in America.

Oh yeah, the Internet thing, real shame.

I wasn't implying that anyone here from Texas is fat, but I just mentioned the statistics. Anyway thats way off topic, so lets never speak of it again.

Children.

Stop flaming.

Stop spamming.

Thank you.

Now, did anyone else from Texas notice their internet going down?

I was with my girlfriend all afternoon, so I didn't notice much.

But wow, I'm more amazed that there are actually more people from Texas on this board. It's nice to know there are people that won't go “You're talking wrong” when I say “ya'll” instead of “you all”. That's really the only Texan stereotype that applies to me.

No internet for an hour? Meh, you guys should try without having internet for weeks or months. That's the kind experience I've gone through.

You know, I just figured it was the weather.

Man, we only make money when it's not raining, it's been raining all month. We are so broke. :)
