I've made it back to civilization after almost two weeks without anything but dial-up that connects at 28k or less. I left that world a long time ago and have no desire to go back.
As you can all tell my my lack of posts, I chose to stay offline instead.
Which was great.
But now I am back. At the Johannesburg International Airport. In the South African Airlines Lounge where they have broadband wifi.
It feels great to be back online.
