Wifi-less Musings

This will be a short post. My wifi is out, and I’m using my phone as a hotspot. Thankfully, I have rollover data, but I doubt I have enough to type my usual 300+ words.

When I was a kid, we had dogs, but they stayed outdoors, so I never got to use the “my dog ate my homework” excuse. In today’s world, I guess that excuse is about on par with “my wifi was out.” I didn’t need that excuse when I was a kid, though, because I always did my homework (teacher pleaser, remember?).

So here I sit, using at least three forms of technology that were foggy visions a mere 20 years ago. A computer the size of a spiral notebook that sits in your lap? A phone the size of a deck of cards that you can put in your pocket and use wherever you go? And they can access information anywhere in the world in just seconds? Impossible!

    “The cloud” still seems like some sort of mystical creation to me. Just hard to imagine all that data just floating around…like this scene…remember this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj3WBfRZ5Nc
