It happens all the time in this one-horse town: net connectivity dies for hours on end. I suppose it's always at peak times when everybody and their grandmother are just coming home from work and getting online or on Sundays when the teenagers are finally rolling out of bed in the late morning or early afternoon.
Not having any net connectivity really ticks me off; just for the record.
But it has an upside, as well: this is when I usually actually get around to writing blog posts or working on my book because there aren't any distractions through email, twitter and such. I get to hammer away at my apple keyboard and upload it all later.
If I ever move again (and I've moved many, many times in my life) on of the main priorities in choosing where to live will be whether there is affordable broadband internet access. There is so much promise in the possible uses of the net. Just think of semantic seraches, for example.
CNN published something on the semantic web yesterday or today. I'd post it here, but I'm writing offline, now. I twittered it earlier today, though.
Another thing I've been interested in for a while is Deepa Mehta's semantic antics. No access to my delicious bookmark on that right now, either. But the gist of it all is in my head and I'll gladly post a link for your benefit later. Along with the CNN article on the semantic web.
Oh, wait: I'm back online! Quick:
I don't have much time left, anyway. Kati is bathing the kids and I'm about to be handed one of them (probably Isa).
