So my laptop just decided around one month ago that it would not let me on the internet at home. It will do everything else I ask it too, but apparently allowing me online is just one step too far.
As it happens, this is not such a bad thing. I've wanted to take a step back from my online reliance, and this has turned out to be very helpful in keeping me away. If I do want to check stuff I can still go online on my iTouch, since my wireless connection is not to blame.
The hope is that I can use the time that would otherwise be spent mindlessly surfing to do something constructive like reading, rather than just heading to the TV all the time.
