Midcontinent has a huge Internet outage covering most of ND, SD and MN. Seems to be spreading into IA. I'm using a personal hotspot on my iPhone for my connection.

"Day one, went outside for first time in years, not sure what this bright orb is glowing and warm above me but it was good. Saw what appeared to be other humans, I hid as to not be detected in case they were hostile."

That sounds like something one of the numerous crazies on this forum would post. You guys don't get out much, do you?

I get out all the time. Just got back from shoveling last night's detritus off the driveway, went for a walk, wrestled and gutted a deer that was trespassing on my yard and cleaned the garage. And since the Internet is back up, I'm going finish booking my trip to Florida and poke a few Liberals before going to meet up with a buddy to drink some brews. Effete and pretentious craft beers. Delicious /s cheers

No doubt the media will be along shortly to claim Trump asked his Russian buddies to disrupt Midco! Wink

Is it still a recommended practice among preppers to maintain AOL dial-up service through the land-line cable serving the bunker?

Crikers, you still own a computer with a dial up modem? Gave up my land line last year so I'll have to/ had to use my cell phone's hotspot to log on.

Oh Gomezz I WAS digging the old modem out from storage. Just in case. It has been a long time since I waited for a screen refresh at 56k download speed.

AFA a land line. Still have one as a redundancy for business and for the exact reason demonstrated by the Midco outage. All the business folks who completely bought-in on VOIP were SOL. We were were still up and running.

This seems like it was a trial run for Armegeddon. What will you do then Gomezz? I have fears that a cellular hot spot won't be functional?
