Going Wi-Fi Commando

14 August 2017

Apparently this particular group of specialist soldiers (the clue is in the title) are well known for not wearing their underpants. I will leave you to work out why this is so.

This strikes me as dangerous battle-fashion, given that I remember being taught as a kid that everyone needed to wear clean under garments in case they were knocked down and sent to hospital.

Why hospitals were even interested was never explained to us. It was one of thoe mysterious pieces of social lore that we just had to accept.

However, it does reinforce the view that underpants are jolly good things to have with us at all times.

Wi-Fi is the same.

We are so used to instant connectivity, that to not have it seems worse than a day trip to the dark ages. How will we check the news ten times an hour? How will we keep up with the mysterious pronouncements coming from that oracle of usefulness known as The Book of Face?

Well, truth be told …we wont. I’ve been told that something called 4G has been invented, but where I live we are still on 3F so internet is heavily Wi-Fi dependent. This means that once the Wi-Fi has been turned off we go dark.

We go Wi-Fi commando in effect.

This is great! Every Summer we turn off the Wi-Fi, park the gadgets and return to 1978 for a couple of days. Time slows down and reading a book becomes exciting again. Board games spring back to life. The days seem more peaceful and there is less stress in the house.

So, this Summer my invitation to you is to borrow from the best and go Wi-Fi commando!

1978 wasn’t really so bad and it’s good to be reminded of the simple pleasures in life and take a break from business and the electronic world for a while.

Enjoy yourself and unwind …flick the switch and make it happen!
