Yikes…no internet!

Penguin DanceWell, it had to happen. As a commercial user my internet connection is Very stable. Nonetheless, when Murphy paid a visit today to a major upstream link, viola, no net.

Having just read the other day in the paper about CrackBerry addiction, it is interesting how totally dependant I am on net access for everyday life.

No email = major withdrawl and major disconnection from everyday contacts. Only when they are interrupted does it become clear how many interactive email conversations I carry on during a day.

No Web = the inability to contact people whose numbers or addresses needed to be looked up and/or GoogleEarth’d in order to find them. I eventually had to dig in the car for legacy technology – an actual map.

No connection with the online teaching system at work.

Sound like much todo about nothing? Guess again! The result was the inhibition of a set of habits that happen every few minutes one way or another. Had I not been out at a meeting (one at which ‘I’ didn’t need the net) it would have been much worse.

So here I am on the net reporting the pains from a short withdrawl from the net.

Good thing that I DON’T have a BlackBerry…Maybe I should refer to my laptop as a CrackTop…
