This can only be understood first hand
I'll take it that any people with cruel reviews here have never lost internet for a duration longer than a thunderstorm. For those of us who use routers (or even worse... dial up ><) know the feeling I feel is portrayed quite well when you return to your computer to find that 90% of your options gone with the lack of internet. And the internet stays gone for days or on occasion even weeks...
Sure... it's not a "Long" flash cartoon. But they all don't have to be. This one was made to express a feeling... not to tell a story. Although a story is usually behind feelings like this.
Kudos to the artist: Good work on your first flash submission. Looking forward to future submissions ^^;
