    My first mobile phone with integrated WiFi arrives tomorrow. I'm definitely hooked.

    It's all good though. Who needs daylight anyway. Like we get any in the UK anyway!

    I'm addicted, but I find a great sense of calm when, due to things like power failures, I cannot get online. I do take breaks - often months long - from posting and most surfing just to make sure I can control it. When I can't go away is when I know I need to.
