From last Tuesday through Sunday early morning I was without any internet access whatsoever. It wasn't planned--I stayed in a house that didn't have it, and I could neither pull in any wireless from nearby, nor did I have time to go to a local wi-fi spot.

I know some people find this liberating, but in the middle of the peak of grading season, I don't. I would rather have gone without indoor plumbing. How's that for a pampered western-elite perspective on what's important?

What's on your mind?

I know exactly how you feel. From a student's perspective no amount of research can get done without the good old internet. Library? What's that? In a current class my professor was gracious enough to give us our final as a take home exam. Trouble is I'll be on a plane traveling from Japan to Arizona and I won't have internet access. Now I get to lug half a dozen books in my carryon! Its gonna be a rough flight!
