Weekend 5 Access 0

I just got back from a five day weekend at the beach with no Internet access whatsoever. No PC. No Mac. No hotel wi-fi. No Internet-connected cell phone. No Internet cafe. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. So what’s the worst thing about coming back from a long relaxing weekend without Internet access?

Forget about paying the bills …

I dreaded to see my inbox. I figured that I’d be drowning in email. My email service provider has been giving me fits again, with missing emails and an overabundance of error messages. So I turned off their automatic spam filtering last week to see if that might clear things up. I had expected an explosion of incoming spam, but that hasn’t been the case.

Boy, was I surprised.

I only had 414 pieces of mail in my inbox. It seems that everyone else was on vacation this weekend … even the spammers.

MailWasher pegged nearly 170 emails as being possible spam. I took ten minutes to sift through the mess and ended up deleting 159 pieces in one fell swoop. That left 255 emails to wade through … not a suitable task for weary eyes. I’ll deal with it in the morning.

Going without Internet access for the weekend did the trick. It was definitely de-stressing (rather than distressing).

    i think it depends on how much you use a phone. I would say if you use it for a bisness 24/7 and you think it will save you money down the long run then yes but if you are just an average user and use it to make basic calls or surf the net then no.
