No Internets

Tonight on GeekNights there are no news or things of the day. We have no Internet, so we have no idea what is happening in the world, nor have we discovered any new entertaining things to share with you. Bear with us as we tell the story of our recent web withdrawal, and ponder the role of the net in our lives.
