Spending time away from any type of internet connection, and phone connection other than my cell phone has been trying. I pride myself on being able to cope in most situations but I felt severely limited in the scope of things I could do these past 4 days. I moved from my longtime home into the new one and I had a great many humorous stories to tell but alas no internet connection so to speak of I couldn’t even check my email with any regularity. I was reduced to finding someone in my building with an open wireless network and connecting that way. Sigh. Pity It seemed like a dialup connection. Anyhow I’m back and by Thursday I should have full network access again.
