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!

Discussions

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.

Come on Keith! You are not going to blend that poor kitty, are you?

Who the h*ll is that guy you just posted?!?

GASP!!!! That's Dr. Evil, of the Austin Powers movie series.....

I swear that's like an Instructables theme now.

GASP!!!!!


It's so fun!

Ugh, its annoying. Stop, please.

Haha, I know. I'm done. Yeah, it's probably spamming your inbox and I appreciate how annoying that is.

Half my inbox is always GASPGASPGASP!!! Ugh!!!

Yeah, same as mine. I hope most of yours aren't from me! Sorry!

Thanks Keith! I don't know very much about the outer world...

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

Ouch! That hurts. I was gone for a week and I was feeling the pain. Going anywhere cool?

I believe he mentions elsewhere that he has gone to Iran.

Thanks for the link.

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.

I'm OK, term ends tomorrow, I've got plenty of stuff to Make, but I'll have to ease off a bit in September, when I go back to school in my new job.

Oopsy, bad link. clicky.

*Sighs sadly*

"I'm OK"-that's what they all say. Right before the implode. Well, I tried...

agreed, that's what i was afraid of when i went to Canada, i ended up fishing through 11 days of backed ibles

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...

esh, I remember dial-up... bad stuff that was..

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...,

No, actually I was looking at your "symptoms" of going away, and I nearly made a comment.....then decided it best not to....about how similar they are to another "female" occurrence..... *blush* sorry.

Lol! That's funny. Goodcall (haha!) on not making the comment though... Looking at my comment again, I agree that it could describe that though...:D

Way too much.
