Five Things To Do With A Computer When You Have No Internet

Five Things To Do With A PC When You Have No Internet Connection

No Internet connection? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Okay, screaming and kicking might be my number one answer to this problem. But maybe I'm a little more paranoid than most about being without a connection. Then again, I have a Fido Hiptop 2 (aka Sidekick II), which gives mobile phone with email and real web browsing. Mmmm, yummy unlimited internet on my phone for $20 a month. Sorry, I got distracted by my phone again.

Speaking Freely has produced a list of SIX really good activities to do with your computer when the unimaginable (that is, no internet) strikes. In short, they are:

1. Clean out and categorize your bookmarks.
2. Delete programs you don’t use.
3. Unplug your computer, take the cover off and clean out the dust.
4. Write your next blog post.
5. Run any maintenance programs you don’t have auto-scheduled.
6. Write down your logins and passwords.

Not bad, eh?

Of course if your internet connection was down, you wouldn't be able to read this blog. Ahh, the sweet irony.

There is only one thing to do in such a case: Call your ISP and tell them how much they suck!
