Gone! For a Week! No Instructables! :-( Answered

Hey everyone. I'm going to be gone for a week. My family is going up to northern Michigan and there isn't any internet up there. Just thought I would bring it up... it seems like a good discussion starter. *How often is everyone on instructables? *Do you have symptoms of withdrawal when you are away? (Just kidding... sorta. Lol) *Anything else!

I'm here at least once a day normally. I don't really have withdrawal symptoms, though. If I'm away, I'm away for a reason. I try to keep my internet usage in check. Otherwise I end up wasting my life in front of a computer. :P

Your logic makes the puppy sad.

A week? I'll be gone for a month starting on the 15th. I was already gone for 3 weeks this summer.

Ouch, a whole week... Me, I tend to be on at least daily, sometimes several times daily. Withdrawal? More of a wondering - what projects have appeared? Have I missed any juicy threads? Has anybody beaten me to projects I was planning to do?

You, my friend, are in denial. You are clearly an instructaholic. Here, come [https://www.instructables.com/community/Admit-It/ admit your addiction.]

Remember, the first step to solving the problem is recognizing that you have one. We're here for you. But if you don't reach out, you will self destruct.

To everyone else: I know this sounds harsh, but sometimes tough love is the only way to get through to an instructaholic.

And the backlog gets bigger every time you go away! I estimate that a weeks away means around 75 projects that I miss. More, if there's a contest on at the time. I'm going to my parents' in August, but fortunately they have wireless, so I'm taking my laptop. Unfortunately, we'll be spending a few days before with friends who don't even have dialup.

Tiem to face your addiction? Get a wireless put in to the car, some use a sattelite connection, others are for parking near wireless, it occurs to me that since you'd have the power source right there you could make a monstrous repeater, hidden inside the body of a car, the engine bay would make a big cavity for catchment, any component in the right place could be a handy inner antenna. We had the 34th mobile in the whole of the UK, big aerial on top of the pickup, worked a treat, the roof was like a massive dish...

I'm gonna be gone for a couple weeks too. I have terrible withdrawl symptoms, including sleeplessness (while thinking about new ibles to write), obsessive thoughts (about wether I have any new comments), mood swings, headache, and depression.

You mean it's OKAY that I'm going AWAY?! Heh. I'm a poet and don't know it...

Ah! I knew it! You were just looking for me to go. You'd be happy if you never saw me again-don't deny it. I can't believe I was such a blind fool. Well, you won't have to worry about me anymore!

Kidding, kidding...,

Way too much.

Yes, I do. Lots of them. And it sucks. Why can't I have 'ibles everywhere!
  • Anything else!
