Giving Up the Internet for Lent

16 02 2010

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and so starts the 40 days and nights of Lent in the Catholic calendar. As part of Lent you are supposed to give up something, a fast of such, and in past years I have give up Alcohol, sweets and the hardest yet Coffee.

What I have planned to give up this year is the Internet, yes you heard right, I’m planning to unplug from all Social Networks, not look at my Google Reader, turn off Google Buzz and not blog on any of my websites. Can I survive 6 weeks?

I made the decision over the weekend as I realised I spend most of my time checking what’s online rather than looking at what’s offline and right in front of me. I think this will be hard, but hopefully rewarding.


Note: Kip Hakes will still be on hand at for comments moderation and news updates.

SITE UPDATE: nokiAAddict Downloads Page Updated

8 07 2009

As promised for the last few weeks I’ve finally updated my Downloads page and will only link to what I think is the best apps for my Nokia phones. These will be the apps I have installed and use on all my phones. Just head to the Downloads page and let me know what you think, I’ll put together a new ‘Installs by gerrymoth’ zip file hopefully tonight if you want a one download solution.


Changes are coming…
