If you ever wondered what makes the internet work, it seems to be the “intertubes” that do it. Except when they they are broken…
Anyway, this is as far as the Zynga Words With Friends support takes me at the moment, when I try to investigate why I can’t access their game on my phone (since yesterday afternoon).
Going on to ask Google what on earth “intertubes” are, it looks surprised and asks me back: “Did you mean: inner tubes?”
However, www.justanswer.com gave me this explanation (answer to a similar question asked a couple of months ago by someone else):
Actually the "Intertubes are broken" message is kind of an inside Joke with Zynga's programmers. The joke is that they are having an issue on their end and not on your computer. --- you should not have to do anything, Usually it can take up to 24 hrs for Zynga to fix stuff on their end.
So I guess I’ll just wait another day or so before I waste any more time on fruitless troubleshooting at my end.
(In the meantime, I’m still able to access the game on the computer via Facebook. Just as info to friends I’m currently playing with!)
