I’m in the process of getting rid of my (whitelisted) internet for good ???”?. What I’ll miss most is the reading and keeping up with the news, especially conservative politics. Can anyone suggest good newsletters that contain enough info without links to the internet? Any other suggestions to combat internet withdrawal symptoms?

Kol hakovod Msseeker! I’m doing the same iy”h, web is a time killer and is 99% negative vs. 1% positive!
After 3 years heavy on the net, I’ve actually done almost 2 years email only! was not easy the first few weeks, but then it was gan eden hatachton! I had more time for my family, more time to learn, and more time to make money..
As of now I’m limiting my time on the web, but this may also go out of hand as one gets the attachment back, so at the asifa I decided to quit the internet iy”h.May 24, 2012 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #877280cheftzeMember
