My dongle is broken


My internet has bust. I'm borrowing a connector from my son but only for this morning. Then I'm offline until I can get a new dongle. Just so as you know.

That is an "oh dear". I hope it isn't too long.

I bet Robin is going to laugh at loud at this one!

Yes, "My dongle is broken" sounds a little naughty. ; )

My son has found a replacement that I can hold on to until I get a new one. What a relief!

I did think of Robin when I posted this and yes, it does sound naughty!

"What shall we do with a broken dongle?
What shall we do with a broken dongle?
What shall we do with a broken dongle, early in the morning?"

next verse somebody...

That's brilliant, Richard. I'll leave the next verse to you too!

sylvia said...

Yes, I thought of Robin immediately when I saw this. I love Richard's song!

Lisa said...

Oh dear - indeed.
I have an iPhone so even if my internet is down, I can still remain connected - isn't life grand!

I use a popsicle stick and some duct tape to repair my dongle when it breaks...

fairyhedgehog said...

Sylvia, I liked Richard's song, too.

Lisa, that sounds like a good idea. I'm not paying for internet on my phone yet but I think I'll have to.

Scott, so now I know what to do!

Ooooh - dongle! I laughed out loud when I read this title, and then I laughed again when I saw what Janey said. You guys just made my day.

But I gotta tell you, if my dongle broke (I call it my USB port - sounds kinda like science fiction sex, now doesn't it??!!) - anyway - if mine broke, I'd freak, as it has my manuscript and all of my notes and changes. I have them in other places as well, but my port is my safe place, so it being broken - aaaahhhhh!!!!! Total freakout.

I was wondering if you'd see this, Robin, with us all thinking about you like that!

Mine isn't a memory card it's my wireless internet connection. I don't lose data when it dies, I just lose the internet. Just! Thankfully I've got one on permanent loan now so I should be OK.

Robin S. said...

Oh, good! Glad you're fine, FH!

Thanks, Robin.
