I wonder what my kids are going to tell their kids . . . “It was so rough back in my day, I didn’t get a phone till 4th Grade and sometimes the wi-fi didn’t always work upstairs.”
Yes, this is exactly what they’ll say, because by then the whole world will probably be linked by neural implants*, with instantaneous access to all the data you could ever wish for!
We had no internet the whole of Sunday!
No, I didn’t spill my coffee over the new Router!
I did my morning chores then sat down with my laptop and a cuppa to do my Sunday post. WordPress would not load. OK, it happens. Maybe WP is working on their site.
So I did some gardening; hacking back vines behind the bougainvillea, which I really don’t like doing.
When I tried again later, there was still no internet.
We had nothing all day.
I don’t know what was going on, but we weren’t alone. A very large area of Cape Town was off-line.
This was more than frustrating as I had arranged to chat online with my sister in the UK. I hadn’t spoken to her for weeks, because of my previous internet problems, (albeit self-inflicted!) I had to cancel.
By 10 pm there was still no connection and the Router had finally given up trying; now showing a solid red internet light!
This morning I automatically checked the internet access.
Wheeeeeeeee! We’re Back!
So here is my Sunday Musings on a Monday!
*post script: While I was simply being amusing here, the reality may be a lot closer than we think. Read this: Elon Musk hopes to put a computer chip in your brain.
