    Recently, I do my regular blog hopping while tiring my neck with left and right head turns making sure that no supervisor is lurking near me. They've been quite strict in the office lately.

    I still check Alternati's blog despite being idle for almost a year now. I am always amazed by his impeccable talent at writing, and I read his posts like I've never read them before, well, specially if my name is in it, or if I was part of the story. It's amazing how the virtual world has kept those memories, complete with a date. It entices me to count years...and realize that it's been 2 or 3 something years since. I miss those days.

    I've seen blogs with posts dated back to 5 years ago, and still active. When googling, I get to access files that were online since the late 90's.

    I treasure every single picture I take with my camera that for backups, I save them in USB's, computer hard drive, and upload them to Friendster, Photobucket and Multiply. I've had terrible experiences with diskettes before and that makes me feel like there's a need for a lot of backups. I hope to see those photos, and read my blogs again years from now. I'm imagining my old self showing my kids a blog I've written or photos I've taken, years before they're even conceived.

    Which makes me think, what if the internet will crash? Could that even be possible? Remember Y2K? What if all things that we have in the entire world wide web will disappear?

    I'm imagining chaos.

      Abou, napa-isip lang. Kasi worried din ako bakaw mawala lahat ng mga pinag-uupload ko. LOL

      Reyn, wala ako alam sa programming. hehehe. Dapat i-program niyong may auto-backup pag nagcrash ang pc. :P

      wandering commuter, wawa naman. ngayon pa nga lang meron na ibang nagsara...economic crisis.

      lucas, panic mode mga tao nun, pero ako no worries kc ndi pa naman ako active user ng internet tas wala naman ako mga bank accounts. hehe...

      I don't think we could live a day today without the Internet. The first thing I do after an outdoor trip is check my email and flickr accounts :D
