I won't be in this week either (we're going to Graham's family over Easter), so you're aware.

Okay, turns out I'm going to my aunt and uncle's for Easter dinner, so I'm not going to make the delayed watch today.

Is it possible to cancel today's watch? I might not make it after all...

In yet another act of petty cruelty from my folks, I don't think I can make ANY rewatch anymore, or even see half you guys in chat anymore.

I'm not even sure I'll be able to get anything at all. It's really too long to explain here, I'm at another place where I can get (very spotty, limited) wifi. Can't get anything at home. I might never see half of you in chat again...

I guess if anyone really wants to know they can PM and I'll try and explain when I can. Unless I'm already dead by then.

That really sucks, May. Hold on there, I'm sure this can be reverted soon.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

This has happened to me so many times I probably can't remember them all: spotty months in 2006, '07, '08, '13, '15, and half of 2014. All I can say is stay strong and hopefully this too will pass.

Was that just due to having a crap connection?

I guess I wouldn't mind as much if that was my problem. It'd be annoying as nuts but at least it wouldn't be anyone's fault/an act of malice... if that was the case then I'm really sorry to hear...

Not much I can say, but May, you know we've got your back, and we'll still be here whenever things are more endurable on your end.

So I had hoped we'd be back in time for watch, but right now still pelting along motorway. Do start without us, we'll try to catch up when we get in the door.

I think most of you know this already, but I won't be in Friday or Saturday. If enough people can make it in on Sunday, maybe the rewatch can be put off until then? If not, go ahead without me.

At a beer festival, and all the trains back are disrupted, so may not be around for rewatch. Do go on without us, we'll catch up.

I won't be available for rewatch this weekend, so don't worry about going on without me

People are being unavailable on the rewatch days an awful lot recently.

Should we reschedule them maybe?
