When the net is gone

Firstly and foremostly:

Happy Birthday, dragnflye!

Today, KSU Facilities cut a fiber optic cable on campus, leaving systems in Nichols and parts of several other buildings cut off from the Internet. I couldn't get into Ringil (and this is why my LJ and GJ mood theme icons, among other files, are not loading). I also could not retrieve IMAP mail from CIS or my KDD server (I stopped forwarding mail there, but some people and mailing lists still send messages there). I am also reduced to sending mail from Hotmail again.

The computer outage allowed for a day of blessed relative quiet and a little introspection. Isn't it funny that you are forced to think about what is really going on in your life only when the net is gone?

Use well the days, mellyn nien,
Banazir

P.S. : I do wish GJ would restore kunzite1's excellent style, kunponent1.

Re: Disclaimer
You're a good man prof.
You got my vote for patron saint of flushing, if it does get commissioned by the Vatican in the near future.

He who lives last lives best
Hey, that's the first time anyone has said they'd outlive me!

Big Folk usually don't foresee that they will outlive hobbits... You must be an elf or a Dunadan (which is entirely plausible given that Gondor is India in at least one of the maps of Middle-earth that's been out there). :-)

And who says I don't do healthy physical work?
(Well, not a lot of it, but some...)
