Off The Grid

After spending five days in Munich without bothering to surf the web at all, I returned home yesterday to discover that Rostock University thought my internet reprieve should be made rather more permanent. My self-esteem is draining slowly, for each time I attempt to connect a message appears stating that something I did could not be authenticated, which is just computer-speak for telling me that I'm a big phony. It is in fact uncannily accurate in this respect, however, as I've been using my roommate's log-on information for the past four months since the University never saw fit to provide me with my own. I leave on Thursday, so the problem can't help but disappear by then, but there are many things between now and then I'd rather not have to do on someone else's computer--like blogging, for instance.
