I always figured I was one of those uber-nerds who’d freak out if he ever lost access to the internet for any significant length of time. I recently moved to a new place, and it took forever to get proper internet access set up. It’s all good now, but I was basically disconnected for quite some time, between not being home during ISP business hours so I couldn’t get new service setup, and then several comical delays once I did finally get a call in to them.
However, it turns out there’s lots of fun to be had if you keep a folder of weird stuff you’ve downloaded over the years. Until I got connected, I was able to read through Hugi #33, about half of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, and play the entirety of Dink Smallwood.
Ergo: it turns out I’m still an uber-nerd. Whodathunkit.
