Upon returning home yesterday evening after an egregiously hectic day, I promptly discovered I had no internet access.
Some might wonder how such a thing could be possible with home and work avenues. Let me just say I will never utilize my job to access my blog. They need not discover this outlet for a great many reasons.
As for home, apparently a DSLAM problem (a bad card, IIRC) caused the outage.
Could I have used dial-up access through my ISP? Yes, I believe so. It’s just that I’ve never taken the time to install and configure the software. I had no intention of going down that road last night.
Instead, I took it as forced exile from the web. I spent extra time with The Kids, worked on Dreamdarkers, and went to bed early.
And what a glorious evening it was. A little less rushed. A little more restful. A lot more personal.
