So, last night, around this time, I was doing my nightly droppings and out of nowhere the internet just decided to stop working. Now, I was getting a bit sleepy, and usually when the net goes out, it isn't out for too long, but I just went on and went to bed.
This morning, I woke up and tried to continue my dropping and lo and behold, still no net. WTF?!? 12 hours and still no net? I figure they're just working on something, though, so I went and ran some errands and came back. Still no net. Frustrated and feeling like a crackhead in his first day of rehab, I called the cable company to see what the deal was. Turns out, they weren't working on anything, but rather it was a problem with the the modem communicating with the router or something or other.
Anyway, I came to the realization that *SIGH* I am addicted to the internet. There I said it. As said as it is to say, I can't remember the time before on-line surfing. Had it not been for the power going out in September thanks to Gustav, who knows when I would have last had a disconnect.
So, now that I've figured out my addiction (there are plenty worse things I could be latched onto, btw), I've decided to step down on my net usage. We'll see how long it lasts, but its worth a try.
