Every so often as it did in the past few days, I lose my internet connection.
In our always on world, we somehow got used to the idea that internet access is like water.
You turn the faucet and there it is.
My 16 year old does not understand why it does not work when it happens.
Does not see any good reason for it except that his brother must have done something wrong.
I tried to explain to him that many things can fail or not work temporarily from servers to wires at the internet provider or routers and other boxes in our own place.
Could not quite get the message across.
Search for Losing Internet Connection on Google and you get a deluge of pages (1,410,000 pages the last time I checked).
Losing Internet Connection= Losing Patience
We forgot that sometimes you just have to sit back and wait.
