How long can you go without internet access?

Moonlighting in a small town in Batangas had me searching for internet access everyday. Seems like i cannot live without the web anymore. I found two computer shops, both with internet speeds of 33.6 kbps. i had no choice but to sit down and touch the keyboard with my trembling fingers to satisfy my craving. I desperately wanted to update my blog but unfortunately, the speed wouldn't allow blogspot to load despite several attempts (explaining the paucity of entries as of late).
with my predicament this i came to realize...
1. i check my 3 different email accounts at least 4 times a day
2. i check my blog at least twice a day
3. i do my blogroll at least twice a day (yea, i check your blogs and other people's as well, e-ve-ry-day)
4. i sign in on my yahoo messenger in invisible mode, but talk to every visible person in it
5. without my internet, i am idle and restless (since i my tv is still busted)
6. when my landline gets disconnected i shout at the costumer service rep on the phone to have it installed IMMEDIATELY OR ELSE.... (and i get my line back instantly)
7. i miss my IRC friends (virtual friends they are) me!! :p

Sorry I can't help you. We have exactly the same problem, the same addiction.
Thanks for the visit, Duke!

yeah our recent entries were of the same topic: i go nuts with blogging, i'm addicted. It's infectious, but it's somehow my new drug of choice.

Thanks for dropping by my humble blog, hope to be seeing more of you there again. Take care and HAPPY WEEKEND! =)

oh yeah, i felt like my weekend was incomplete when my PC at home got busted Friday morning. For some reason, I got addicted to reading people's blogs, and not being able to do so over a two-day rest would make me feel just as restless.

oh boy, i really need to schedule a home tech service...too bad I can't carry the darn tower (yep, i use a server tower for a home PC) to the nearby shop.
