Internet = meh!
« on: 2017-Nov-06 »
My internet provider went belly up, so I’m stuck using sporadic 3G. Looks like it will take a couple of weeks to setup a new land line connection. It’s amazing how much the net takes up of your spare time, I never really noticed till it wasn’t there. I have been forced have actual conversations with real people and read actual books!  :D

I also never noticed how much time I spent tweeting, Reddit, reading mail, checking git hub, coding sites etc. I think it must me 2-3 hours a day!

If I didn’t need it for my day job, I’d consider leaving it off as I feels like it can consume an unhealthy amount of your time... maybe!  :P

It is true, but going out usually costs money, so when I´m broke, the internet helps a lot.  ;/
