Thanks to a relatively expensive combination of Logic broadband Internet and a cellular-based wireless service from M3 Wireless called easyConnect, I am now online in my quaint little pool house. I was pleased at how easy it was to setup, which almost made up for the fact that I didn’t receive it on Saturday.
The past four days or so without Internet at home kind of reminded me of my term in Greece when I would make runs to the Internet café – usually Bits and Bytes – or later to the university. Only this time I was going into work. What a slave to the Internet I am. It is a weird addiction too, because I don’t really need to be actively using it, I just need to know that it is there. If I want to know what is on television every night this week or if I want to learn about the local flora of northern Guatemala, I want to be able to do that immediately and from the comfort of my own home. Or yard.
