Smart Bro, Not Smart Anymore?

Sorry, but I have to rant.

Yesterday, it was around 4:45 pm when my Smart Bro internet connection at home just went out. I was of course disappointed rather than angry. I immediately restarted the router and turned on and off the internet connection for few minutes and thankfully after 10 mins. or so the net connection is back.

I was back blogging but to my dismay, I could not open my blogs and worst I could not publish the post that I finished before the net disappeared. I checked on other sites and they are loading so I thought it's just my blog's server that is down so I contacted my nephew who is the one handling my blog hosting. He replied back telling me that he can access all of my blogs without a hitch but I don't believe him.

Still not convinced that my blogs are accessible, I asked my bestfriend to check it for me and she said my blogs are fine and they are all loading fast on her browser and also Smart connection too. Arghhh.. so that left me with no one to blame but SMART BRO!

I'm pretty sure that it has intermittent connection and selective browsing.. argghhh. I had some couple of posts that need to be published on my blogs that are "down" on my side but I don't have a clue how can I access my account with that kind of connection. I restarted my pc, router and the net wire few times already till this morning but still it's not working on some blogs/site..

Using Proxy Server Site

A friend saw my tweet and IG post and she experienced the same when she still uses Smart Bro before. She called up the tech support and Smart advised her to use a proxy server site to access my blogs. I tried it and it work but still would not want to use it via that medium though.

I want my good connection back Smart Bro! Too bad they would not even give me discount after experiencing such intermittent and selective browsing problems. Boo!

Limiting Online Times

Oh dear, I’m so.. so.. so.. guilty of this! In the morning and after having my breakfast and that is usually around 8:00am already, I pick up my phone and immediately check my Instagram (not my mail) account. That usually take me around 15-30 mins. depending on how many comments I have to reply on certain photos that I’ve posted.

After checking my phone, I’ll switch to my desktop to check my email, facebook and other online accounts and also of course my work accounts. It will take about an hour or more. Then I’ll prepare the things that I will cook for lunch and I go back online.

Around 11 am, I will cook and in between I will go online until evening doing works, browsing, online window-shopping and also some digi scrapping if I have the mojo for that. Practically, online works keeps me busy and occupies my time that I noticed that I’m not taking my dog out for walk in more than a week already.. bad bad bad!

I read an article about prioritizing things and minimizing online times as much as possible. I can say that I miss getting out but when I think of going out it means shelling out money and that I don’t want to do at the moment.. yay!

Anyway, I will try to limit my online times but how can I do that if my work requires me to be online 24/7? Oh I guess I need another vacation where I don’t need to bring my work.

The Internet and Me

These days, it seems that I can’t separate myself using my laptop or desktop pc and hooking on the Internet. A day will not be complete without reading my mails, working on some of my online works or simply browsing for some cool stuff. I reckon it has grown on me and become part of my life and I will not wonder anymore why some people are feeling the same way too.

The Internet has been a good source of anything and everything that’s why entrepreneurs also see it as a good tool for their businesses. Why not? Millions of people all over the globe connect to the Internet not just to read mails, chat or reconnect with friends & relatives, pay bills, do online banking but to shop as well.

Who would have thought that we can purchase or order products without even going out of your house? Business owners realized that they can get targeted clients online so they opt to put up online stores. You need not have knowledge on we site building because; there are companies who offered such services plus web hosting. If you want to get started or you want to see some reviews on web hosting, you can read info and reviews on Blue Host which happens to be the webhost of my blog.
