    Not a 'I quit IM' or 'IM sucks' thread but seriously though..how can one do IM under the following conditions
    -50 degrees temperature
    -Slow internet connection
    -Youtube banned (Need to use VPN which further slows up the internet)
    -No electricity for 16+ Hours which means no computer

    Yup..it's Pakistan! :)

    Tell me how I can make this work..I'm totally dedicated to this but seriously guys use up those blackhat minds and tell me how I can work.
    Thanks :)

    -Buy Air Conditioner
    - There are other Pakistani IMers here so I am sure there should be better connection there
    - Get anything except HMA. They are usually slow
    - Get an Inverter/Generator

    Winners never give excuses!

    I have got about 12 AC's but see no electricity > No AC
    I was gonna buy up a generator to pump up the WIFI at least.

    But you were the guys who taught me to never quit so don't tell me I can't do this :p

    No electricity for 16 hours/day? Whoa, that sucks!
    If there's no electricity, there's no internet, if there's no internet, there's no IM for you, sorry.

    There's always an option to move to another country though.

    So the 16 hours a day without electricity is that a regional problem or is it just to your house/street/town ?

    It will probably be better if you made some cash offline then moved somewhere more suitable for you to do your online business.
    Sounds tough mate but good-luck.

    Not true brother. If you were acclimatized to those conditions, you would be just fine.

    I can suggest something: Acquire as much information/content during online hours, then use your offline time to compile unique articles/content that you can upload when you're again online, and maybe pay for quality seo services from fiverr. Either if you have sites/blogs/channels etc, monetized by either adsense, amazon, cpa or other affiliate marketing, they all need a form of content, and quality content for organic traffic.

    Hope this helps.

    EDIT: You even can be more efficient compared with many with good comps, fast internet and no downtime, that procrastinate, playing games or watching serials during the day.

    It's actually different in most parts of Pakistan.
    In some areas there is upto 22hrs of loadshedding,in some 4,8,12,16 etc etc.
    I'm gonna get a new internet connection,say 2 weeks and then gonna buy a laptop and get the Wi-fi on the UPS and all is gonna go well I hope :)

    OP paying the bills usually takes care of the electricity problems.

    Waiting for the street lights to come on in order to drain power from them is not the best of practices, seems like your a literally in a black hat world.

    I'm just joking a bit OP, don't take any offense.

    You will do just fine buddy. The only difference is that the more traditional IM methods will need to be twisted to compliment your current capabilities set by your environment.

    If the wireless router is connected through local internet cable lan, then when a power down occurs in the city.. the near routers/switches will be off too, and you'll have no Internet regardless your UPS.

    Guys I can't move to another country :p
    I'm just 16.
    My dad pays the bills,fees and well it's a rich life I'm living but IM is my destiny..I can't live with the fact that I can make more money while I'm still in school than most of the educated people say doctors,bankers etc.
    I once made more money than people working for more than 10-15 years in banks and being doctors so it's something worth doing all this for !
