Egypt went off-line yesterday "Saturday morning 20th Dec. 2008" due to breaks in the under water cables "near the shores of Italy" that carry the DSL Signals to Egypt from France. Not Egypt alone faced the problem, but also parts of the Middle East, and South Africa.
I kept on searching for my good old "US Robotics Fax Modem", remember that? but I couldn't find it so I had to wait until the connection came back later that night.
Being forced to be off-line for me is an experience that I haven't had before and I with that doesn't happen again.
What would you do if you suddenly were forced to stay off-line?
