OK, so I’ve been off the grid for three days now, soaking my feet in the ocean, and having a great vacation. But I’ve started to realize how much I take net access for granted. So far I’ve realized that I can’t:
- Send pictures
- Check ferry schedules
- Check flight information
plus about 9 or 10 other things I’ve forgotten about. You think that net access is everywhere, until you get out of the house and visit some other spots. Right now I’m paying $2 for 15 minutes on a beater computer in the back of a coffee shop in Beaufort, sippng an iced latte while my wife shops for (blech) antiques.
