Right in the middle of IM-ing, checking a streaming audio connection in Second Life, my internet connection blinked out. Qwest said, "There are outages on your area" and with an estimated fix time of "a few hours", I trucked down to the Scottsdale Public Library to try and sip the free wireless here to get some work done
The speed is kind of poky at times, but its a great service they offer here. Maybe I should stop this nonsense and do something like read a book?
It really struck me how lost I was with my tether to the net severed.
I am posting this to flickr via carrier pigeon ;-)
