    To complete my run of bad luck, last night my house was struck by lightning. It fried my computer as well as my modem. I'm using a borrowed 'net stick which keeps giving me errors half the time and based on the service my ISP gives me, I doubt I'll be getting 'net back for awhile (yes, I wrote a complaint hub about them!). Unfortunately last time they stuffed me up, they also ended up getting me on a different contract which they inform me will be over $200 to cancel. Lovely.

    So if you don't see me around for a few weeks (months?), or I don't answer your emails or comments, that's why!

    Ditto!  I just can't see HP without WryLilt. 

    What a serious bummer.
    I do hope things will get better for you - and soon! - and I hope the hubs will earn bundles for you.

    Awww...Wry...that sucks! sad

    But hey...things may be a bit trying at the moment, but these trials are just a moment in time.  You mustn't dwell on what went wrong.  Think positively on getting on with the now, and the future.  I'm sending positive thoughts your way.

    Best of luck, and I'm sure we'll see you very soon. Have yourself a Merry little Christmas...problems notwithstanding. smile

    Sorry to hear that. I would be freaking out.

    Don't look at any Amazon/adsense earnings that whole time and then come look back at it in a couple weeks! I always wanted to do that, but I don't have near enough hubs.

    Your dark cloud will shift and the sun will shine again! All things happen for a reason. Good comes from unfortunate events and in hindsight you'll look back and smile and realise what lessons you've learnt! Keep smiling and be happy!

    Bad Luck is another term of words for 'I don't see it now, but there are some key learning's I will gain from this experience'

    Wry, take care of you and the family and get back when you can get back. The fantastic thing is you know your views and earnings will grow without even creating new and exciting hubs.

    Only on for a minute but couldn't miss going on HP of course. tongue

    As to library computers, wifi etc, pretty difficult with a one year old daughter who doesn't like to sit still for five minutes and is pretty much with me 24 hours a day when I'm not working.

    I'm hoping to get my net back hopefully first week in January, so will see how that goes.

    I've been using an internet stick but it's bloody expensive, chewed through $15 in about half an hour of just plain sites, not even videos or big pictures!

    Oh Wry, I am so sorry to hear about your run of bad luck.

    I hope it gets sorted out soon and you are back writing hubs and dishing out great advice. smile 

    In the meantime, your great hubs will still be earning you some $$$$ and hopefully lots of it.  How cool is that?

    I hope you can find a way to enjoy the break and come back soon refreshed.

    Thanks everyone. I'm officially back. Which is very surprising since I was advised by telstra that my 'net would be connected by Friday, meaning they're actually EARLY. I didn't know that was possible for telstra!

    I'm still on hubby's crappy old computer though, since mine hasn't been fixed yet. sad
