Default Scary Thoughts - Life Without The Internet

However, the big shock to my system came with the realization that for a period of time during those days I was extremely bored. It was fine while I was working, but afterwards without the Internet to distract me, I had nothing to do for the remainder of any working day. The evenings were fine because I have a very active social life, so no problem, but it did get me thinking about how the absence of the Internet might affect the majority of us in one way or another.

I still have phone modems in all my systems (7 of them). They are cheap for insurance.

Surely the internet with DSL, cable high speed connection has provided us less time to get in touch with friends, pay bills, shopping and search for things we don't quite know fully. Rest assure, I could always stay in the Golf course, fishing boat, hunting lodge, my workshop or play Mahjong.
