Advantages of lack of internet

The recent storms in Tripoli knocked out my flimsy phone line resulting in no internet.


I don't have enough motivation like before to sit at an internet cafe and check blogs so Dhafer was kind enough to release your comments while I enjoyed the silence...one week with no internet = three books read, 50% more time with family and 100% completion of 'to do list'.

Hmmm maybe I should no longer be connected ?

good to know all is well.

Salam Highlander,
Mabrook on being disconnected, but hopefully not too long. You have a great fan base, but no pressure. ;-)

the internet is like a drug, you get hook on to it and i cant imagine life without it, although 80% of what i do on the net is useless but yet its its a part of the so called "modern life style"

Good to see you back

Fe aman allah

i know what you mean...Internet can consume hours of time that can be spent in real human interaction..
anyway,,,i really do hope that there is no plans to get off the blog sphere:)

hi Highlander
Same here wallahi, I have been without internet at home for more than 3 weeks, and now i am browsing the blogosphere at an internet café, I think we should get used to being separated from the rest of the world in winter.

we can do nothing, but look at the full part of the glass and enjoy the break.

Thanks Anglo, Ibee, Akak, Benghazi and CNN. I think that internet is a curse now. There was less pain before it's invention.
