Internet's back on. It was out for 4 days, and it was kind of refreshing. But here I am on the internet again. I guess that's how they get you.

@cameron What happened? I almost wish it would happened to me to be honest. :P

Isn't that funny? :) I like it when the power goes out too, though that doesn't happen as much out west as when I lived in the midwest where we had big storms.

The internet company had to send out a guy, as the power supply was only sending half power to the internet box after turning off and on breaker to install a smoke alarm, but it was a really old power supply.

@cameron It is! It's breaks that I need and like, but I never take them myself.

Those poor boxes acts like fragile fuses that always breaks for everything. :P

@cameron I mostly unplug most weekends with just limited checking emails and checking to make sure nothing has blown up. Normally my phone sits on a table and I just grab it for a few minutes for a quick scroll. Hints why on weekends it takes hours for me to respond if I do.

Yeah, that's good! I've been keeping the wifi off most of the time and just using the computer on ethernet.

Such a double edged sword, the internet...

@cameron I don't know I just been working on finding activities that don't involve the internet. Sometimes its taking the boat out or going fishing or sometimes I work on building and designing 3D printers. Been traveling a bit more like the vegas trip a few weeks ago or playing dominos and board games. Therefore I never really have to force myself to unplug but being active enough to forget the internet

Yup, that's a good way to go! We need to do more stuff out in the world too. We can get kind of hermit-like over here. :)

@cameron oh same here its hard to push yourself to get out as sitting at home can become so comfortable. We can become hermits pretty quick over here too and have many times.
