The modem my brother bought several years ago has died from overexhaustion. It was a rebuilt or refurbished one he bought about three years ago. It just finally bit the dust.
It was perhaps just as well I was offline. It has been hell for me, not just for the financial/job stuff, but I have a very ill relative now. It's really depressing for me to cope if this person is no longer here. I have just about given up living myself.
I don't handle death worth a shit, and I am not ready to handle this one, should it happen.
