Most of the time I laugh at news stories about people who are addicted to things that don’t even exist. Like the countless Chinese or Korean people who play Starcraft or World of Warcraft until they die. Today I realized that I myself have a web addiction, or so it seems.

Today started as a regular day with me checking our “Shackariam” IRC. Dubbed so to elude spies from figuring out what we are planning on a web based game. Anyway, I go check the Shack (Shacknews) and I load up the latest chatty. After doing so I go back to the IRC for a little bit. Everything is good and dandy. After my shower I come back to load the Shack again only to find the website not responding. Puzzled I quickly go to the IRC to dispel the thought of it being just me. It seems that the site is down for everyone. The usual jokes come up as I expected. I get into the mindset that all should be well after class.

After class I come home and the site is still down. Everyone in the IRC by now is aware and waits to for it to come back. I get bored because I go there to entertain myself and chat but since I can’t I have nothing to do. Hours later I find myself napping. Now I am tired as hell, headache included, and the Shack is still not back. This is the longest downtime since the great server crash of years past that I can remember, although Tammi tells me there was one last summer but the memory eludes me.

I pray that all is well tomorrow. I need my Shack.
