    Yesterday, I left my house for work as usual. Missed my regular bus got into the next bus and what I see on the road is only traffic. I was just wondering whether all the vehicles in Bangalore had decided to go for a drive. Changed my bus and got to office quite late thanks to all the traffic jams.

    Usually after coming to office, I log into IL and whenever free for few minutes, will just go thru the latest in IL. But yesterday was not my day as I was already late could not log into IL as pile of work was crying for my attention. Hence decided will log to IL later and finished all the work very quickly and was glad that I would be logging in IL and opened IL website and Lo the message come " Not able to connect". So again waited for few minutes checked and the same status. I thought maybe server problem, tried logging into different site but was unsuccessful. Called my System administrator to check and he did the configuring etc but IL was very adamant not to open. He said the website is having problems.Slowly time started ticking by, I was becoming restless all the withdrawal symptoms started but IL was merciless. No amount of praying to God or uttering OPEN SESAME could help the same to open. I was totally disheartened.

    IL had become a passion, an addiction for me. I realised without IL life will never be the same again. I was on the verge of breaking down, still the same continued. I was literally mad, I could not concentrate on any thing. I was listless, angry, confused. My evening tea time also came but the same thing. Finally I thought for the last time I will try otherwise.............. and clicked on the website........time was ticking by.. by patience was wearing out and slowly I was sending prayers to the almighty.......and there the Homepage of IL started popping up.........I could not believe myself, pinched me hard, realised it was true. I thought my Day is Made atlast.

    Dear lalitha,

    ya, Same feeling i had last week.I didnot get my bb connection.
    the warning given in homepage is verymuch true no doubt.i open my pc in the morning and keep il open all time.while doing other work also i keep the il window open.
    I feel IL reduces my stress a lot.

    Thanks to Malathi and Jey for providing such a nice platform.

    Hi Lalitha & all the ILs,
    Me too....
    Earlier we did not have a net connection at home, so monday to friday, as soon I come to office, I try to check for any emergency jobs, check my mails & then log into IL.
    If in case , lots of office work, I wait for the lunch hour.
    weekends, I used to go mad, since I did not have a connection at home.
    2 weeks back , we got the net conn. , the first thing I did was to open IL.
    Computer Typing
