Actually, my computer was fried by a sudden power surge a few months ago and I bought a used Dell off Craig's List for $30.00 and I'm still using it. It needs tweeking weekly but so far, it's OK for now while I search for a newer computer that I can afford. I've been periodically checking out what's on sale at TigerDirect.com - Computers, Computer Parts, Computer Components & Electronics . They sold me the computer that got zapped but it was a good working computer for at least 3 years until that happened.
During the time I was without a computer, I used the computers at my local library to check e-mail and surf the net or whatever it was I needed to get done... or I slept!
Hey! That was one of MY New Year Resolutions too!!
I actually do read a lot while on the internet (newspapers, magazine article's, etc.) but I haven't read very many books recently and I used to read 2 books a week (before I had kids!!) LOL! I do pick up free paperbacks and cheap ($2.00), used, hard covers at the library all the time and was given 2 books for my birthday last September. But I was recently diagnosed with a cataract and that explains a lot, as to why I seem to fall asleep when I do sit down (lay down) to read a book. It's a small one but I think I've been experiencing eye strain when reading and didn't even realize it until I went to the eye doctor last week. I have to go for more tests in April. Ugh!
I usually surf for fun and some times for a reason Internet has been very useful to me but wout it it would be difficult, I see that the new generation is too lazy to search for things outside home, They prefer home stay.
I'd go cut myself if I had no Internet.. it's my life man, what would I do without it.
On a serious note, I would probably still be pretty damn ************ed off, do whatever I can to solve the problem, and if nothing can really be done, I would have to just resort to some other form of entertainment such as a nap or watching some television
