You guys made some pretty persuasive arguments on whether or not to pull the plug on my home internet connection. I hadn’t considered the fact that the library internet would not be secure as Marlene pointed out. I’ve been hacked enough times for one tech challenged person I can’t risk it again. Cat, on the other hand, pointed out how the tech industry, Google and others, are switching to renewable energy. So maybe it won’t be much longer before those servers aren’t sucking up all our fossil fuels.
So with that I’ve decided to keep the internet. What is the point of pulling the plug to try and convince myself that I wouldn’t be contributing to a technology that is unsustainable.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to import the contents I’ve been able to save from my previous blog into this one and then do some major house cleaning. I’ve imported the first batch which should be up within the next 24 hours. I don’t know how this works so I’m concerned that you will have a full inbox of notifications from me and am afraid to upload the rest.
Would you please let me know if your inbox is being overwhelmed. I’ll stop and see if there is a way I can prevent the rest of the material from doing that when it uploads.
