    So what would you guys do if the internet turned off?

    Saw this on Slashdot, and figured that this would be a perfect place to carry the discussion.

    So discuss.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    I'd go into immediate weather radar withdrawal.
    Then I'd go ride my bike.

    Wouldn't have to waste my time going through all of those stupid forwarded emails from my wife.

    But also means that I would have to actually call tech support at work and listen to someone with a Far Eastern accent ask me the same question over and over. Gimme someone from Tiajuana over Ismokecrackistan any day.

    internetless... wao.. I've been online since the the BBSes at 2400 bauds... I guess I will:

    1) resort to adult shops for movies

    2) visit questionable bars for social interaction

    3) Ride the bike a lot more

    Get rid of my porn addiction?


    Edit: And look for a new job. Hopefully in the adult film industry.

    remember the fact my left hand will never leave me:-)

    ride my bike, or knit.

    or, remember I have a private server on my computer, and I have a lot of typing I need to do.

    Do you take checks?

    Also, are you strong enough to hold it down if it tries to bounce?

    You should just give me your credit card number, it would be easier. And, for completely unrelated reasons, your birthday. That's what a real friend would do.
