blogging without high speed internet...

just imagine if you lived in a city or suburb where there wasn't high speed Internet... does anyone remember those days... or are you stuck in those days...

I had email in 1992... i remember how long it took to get the email thru my dial up back then... ouch... thankfully i only knew 2 people who also had email...

I think it's what keeps me from wanting to move out to the sticks... get away from the craziness that is puget sound...but oh the things we would have to give up... at the top of the list... Target, Costco, Trader Joe's and high speed internet... how can one blog???

I need my connection... I was without my computer the last few nights and I feel very disconnected... I'm the one who blogged almost every day of her 2 week vacation...

Guess what they have for this problem....

Hughes net

So now if I could just get over my Costco, Trader Joes and Target addiction I could move to the wide open spaces... imagine the blog possibility of living far away... we could all have these great farms like Kristen's parents from loving our simple life... and tell everyone about it without the sacrifice of our high speed... come to think of it i could do all my shopping on line with my high speed internet and make a monthly pilgrimage to for what I can't order online...

Seriously, being at my parent's makes me want to move to wide open spaces. Our house seems even more "neighborhoody" since being away.

But the internet is slower. And there aren't any Costco's. Target, that would be a hard one. A really hard one.

Is there an announcement coming?? Are you leaving the city??

Gee...I don't think I could do without the high speed...I did it for two days when the hubby and I went away and that was okay...but forever? And then, no Target? Are you leaving?

I face the same problems sometimes too. What I did is to run my computer through a computer check up and it was all fixed. If you are interested you can do the same at http://www.pcaholic.com. Apparantly they provide alot of free tools to help in speeding up the computer.

I am so going to check this out.
Sounds so cool.
I never want to go back to the days of dial up.
Back then my email would reach like 800 before I would check it.
So.slow.
