Man I feel so addicted to the net. I just moved back to my apartment in school and since my ex roomate moved out he took all the cable modem and network stuff since it was his. Last night I was going crazy without the internet. It's like you don't feel connected to something anymore. Right now I'm at work in the computer lab but tomorrow we're heading out to grab a cable modem and router.

Anyone else have Internet Deprivation horror stories?

It's happened to me several times when our cable connection sometimes refuses to work. Luckly it hasn't happened much lately, but it used to all the time.

Yea, when my cable wouldn't work it killed me. I went mad. Whenever I do something to make my dad mad, my dad "doesn't let me use the computer". Against his will I sit there, and he yells. But I still play with the computer. I'm hooked.

Ok I'm back. After spending some money with the roomates we've purchased a cable modem and a router. Ahh it feels like fresh air.

I know I'd never be able to do that, so I don't even bother trying to make it a resolution.
