Writing (blog) is a curse

I have just finished writing an article (comparison of free blog services - you can get it here [in Bahasa Indonesia]). For a simple article, it took me quite a while to finish it. Granted, I am learning CSS at the same time.

Now, here I am trying to finish reading books ("The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture," "blink," and "Computer Forensics and Cyber Crime"). I need a place where I can concentrate. That means a place without computer and Internet. Combination of computer and Internet is so distracting. Mailing lists and blogs are distractions.

So here I am at Starbucks (Ciwalk - Bandung) with books, pen & paper, a notebook. A conventional paper-based notebook, that is. No computer. I know that there is a WiFi access here, but I just don't want to be disturbed by it. And you know what, I am writing this on a piece of paper. D@mn. Can't get away from it. The temptation of writing a blog entry is a curse.

BTW, I did finished reading two (or three) articles from Newsweek magazine. Those books are still waiting...

Here's what I do when I need the peace and have to surpress the urge of my itchy fingers. I didn't pay the internet bills :D
