Maybe you were affected, I know we were at work. Time Warner Internet was down in the Augusta area for a large chunk of the day. Some lost phone service as well but all was returned to normal around 3pm. The reason for the outage was a faulty router.

It's amazing how much today we rely on the internet. We even had two employee go away from the building for internet access to get work done. I know it certainly delayed my to-do list today. Time Warner is a great company and has great internet just stuff happens every so often and it's with every provider of internet, cable, satellite, phone, power, etc.

Back when I first started in radio I think my first station only had one or two computers and they were mostly used for typing and printing stories.  Being without internet is a close second to being without power. It was tough but as a team we made it through the day.
