Flaky Internet Connection – Can You Survive Without Internet?

My Internet connection is really flaky tonight. Not sure what’s going on. Comcast usually has good service.

Anyway, makes me realize how dependent on the Internet I am. It’s not even worth turning on the computer if the Internet is down. There is nothing to do. I even listen to my music online (Yahoo! Music Unlimited, soma fm, di.com). And I’m going crazy right now because it has to rebuffer every 20 seconds!
