Hello strange technical problem

Yes, all of a sudden.  Hello!  Then a week later it suddenly resolves itself.  I couldn’t connect to the internet at home for about a week, then all of a sudden today its fixed.  Since I changed no settings, and both of my computers failed I knew it was a problem on their end.  I dunno why it happened though, or how they noticed it because I was still working up the nerve to try to deal with it on the phone.  My supervisor had been to busy to call, unless he did, they fixed it, and I didn’t know about it.

At any rate, it was a nice surprise after beating Cave Story.  For those of you who played Super Mario Brothers, Commander Keen, or any of a hundred other side-scrolling platform games out there, you should know about Cave Story.  It was developed by a Japanese programmer who goes by Pixel in 2004.  It is sort of an RPG-Platform game.  I like to think of it as a perfect combination of the first NES Zelda game and Commander Keen.  The graphics are primitive, but very good.  The sound is one of my favorite parts, it’s chip programmed like an NES game would be.  It’s truly a retro game with some new spins.  The story is totally original as far as I know and features a nameless robot sometimes referred to as the savior in the English translation.  Anyway, it’s probably the best game I’ve played all the way through since Planescape: Torment.  Just google Cave story, there’s a version for just about every computer platform as and even a few console systems.  Someone apparently even ported it to graphing calculators.  Oh fine, Ill give you a link, because I know you’re too lazy to actually click on your google search bar and type in Cave Story.
