So our T1 went down here at work. We have dual gig connections to the internet at our cage, but here we rely on a single crappy T1.

It was down for over an hour. The funny thing is, absolutely all work seemed to cease over on the tech side of things while it was down. People got up, walked around, chatted with each other... we had no access to our production machines, to our netsaint monitor, to our email, anything. It was actually kinda nice, first real voice conversation we've had here in months probably. ;)

Heh, the junior admin noted that our line must be down when he got in because my boss and I were sitting down and chatting - face to face for a change.

I'm not sure if that's cool or sad, but it's definitely amusing.
