I know what you mean. When I tried to get on, same thing. I tried several times and was so happy when it finally worked. Just knowing there are people out there you can reach out to means so much and when you can't, it is a lonely feeling.
I think you are right, it wasn't really all that long, just felt that way. Well, the good news is you did get something accomplished!
