Daily life: Oh, my. There actually *is* a life offline.

A note to my readers: If you sent me email before April 2014, please resend it. Due to a computer mishap, I've lost all my email between 2008 and April 2014.
If you sent email after April 2014, and I haven't replied to it yet, feel free to resend it. It should be in my inbox, which I'm still plowing through, but there's no reason you should have to wait any longer than you already have.

I've saved the best news for last:
I stayed mostly offline in February.
Let me repeat that: I STAYED MOSTLY OFFLINE. If you don't understand the full import of that, let me repeat what I wrote in my last journal entry:
It's the web that's the problem. And it was a very serious problem by the time that I pulled the plug in mid-January - against my will; my body went into a state of collapse, and I ended up with the flu.
Before that happened, do you know how long I'd been online? Five days. I got nine hours of sleep during that time.
So I've now officially moved "web usage" from "medical problem" to "medical emergency."
So hurrah, yes, major progress in having an offline life. Which is why I actually have accomplishments to list in this blog entry.
