Working on vacation works!

Faced with the prospect of not having any children in the house for most of July, my wife and I decided to go someplace fun in a twosome fashion. But we both feel the burden of having a good time, so we took the pressure off by deciding to work on vacation.

That means we loaded up the car with books and have headed off to my family’s summer cottage, having checked with my siblings to make sure we have it to ourselves for a few days. So, I’m sitting here reading, and writing some stuff I’ve meant to write. At night we’ll eat food we like, and see some plays at Shakespeare & Co. It is exceedingly pleasant.

On the other hand, for the next few days, I’m on dialup. (It also means that I’m using AOL. If you have a better way for me to use dialup very occasionally, let me know.) Thank goodness there are usually parking spaces outside the public library within reach of its wifi signal early in the morning when I go into town to buy groceries, newspapers, and the best sourdough bread in the country.

And now I must get back to work!

  1. For occasional dialup use, I keep an account with Concentric.net for $8/mo. That also includes some small web hosting. A fried avoids dialup altogether and goes each morning of vacation to the local bakery with wifi and stays local the rest of the day.

  2. Watch out when you use library wifi while the library is closed!

  3. Akma, you were much on my mind as I sat in my car outside the library. Wouldn’t want to be stealing that unused public bandwidth! isn’t that what they got Paris Hilton for?
