Somebody must have written one hell of a business case for this baby

It's not that I don't want one but this is for use in the airport in Toronto. I've never seen one elsewhere.

I fell off the Internet and I liked it

Yes, I did.

I fell off the Internet. Literally.

Dropped in for a visit and vacation to family in Costa Rica. 14 days with on and off connectivity.

About 8 days or so in, my internet service for my button/ domains stopped working. My personal internet exchange server went offline as did my file services and voice mail to email redirection. Not a happy camper me was.

I am now thinking that it is time to drop off the internet in the physical sense and go purely cloud based. I'll still keep my vast image, video and music libraries on my physical servers but will let go of hosting email, contacts and calendars.

I think. This is a big step for me so I will have to think about it.

Still only partly online now. Expect youtubes and smugmugs of Costa Rica soon. The gang of 2 adults and 6 kids generated 50gb of video and images.

Big short coming of the cloud - video is limited to 10 minutes on both youtube and smugmug. We have 3 1/2 hours and I will not break it up into 21 or more little clips.
