Being offline wasn't all bad, after all. In the three weeks that I've been without a full time internet connection, I managed to read a couple of books, watch quite a few movies, finish a lot of things with the house, and we went to Cairo for a short 6 day holiday (well holiday for me, my wife was actually there for work).
More on all that later.
I haven't checked except my most essential email since the end of January, and I haven't read a single blog in three weeks. And never once did I get the urge to go to an internet cafe to surf the net. It's been quite liberating, really.
