"Like so many things in life, you tend not to appreciate what you’ve got
until it’s gone. For me, as I’m sure is the case for so many, it’s
certainly true of my Internet access. We’re all so used to being online,
jacked in, connected, that any downtime feels virtually paralysing –
we’re lost, disconnected individuals unable to get basic information or
do anything of use, which I suppose is pretty pathetic really."
