In the last year what is the longest time you have been offline?
Well, our fearless leader, Michael Corfman, is on vacation right now. And since Internet time is pretty expensive on the cruise he is on, Michael has actually been offline the past few days for longer than anytime in the past year. So, for this week's question we thought it would be interesting to ask folks what is the longest they have been offline in the past year. Tell us how long you've been offline, and be sure to share what you were doing that kept you away. View poll
