The Old Computer Challenge V2: day 5

Some quick news for the Old Computer Challenge!

As it's too tedious to monitor the time spent on the Internet, I'm now using a chronometer for the day... and stopped using Internet in small bursts. It's also currently super hot where I live right now, so I don't want to do much stuff with the computer...

I can handle most of my computer needs offline. When I use Internet, it's now for a solid 15 minutes, except when I connect from my phone for checking something quickly without starting my computer, I rarely need to connect it more than a minute.

This is a very different challenge than the previous one because we can't stay online on IRC all day speaking about tricks to improve our experience with the current challenge. On the other hand, it's the opportunity to show our writing skills to tell about what we are going through.

I didn't write the last days because there wasn't much to say. I miss internet 24/7 though, and I'll be happy to get back on the computer without having to track my time and stop after the hour, which always happen too soon!
