Though I don't love being on my own for a night, normally I take it as an opportunity to play video games and eat unhealthy foods. But in this case I can not do the latter, as I've made a serious promise - and I can't do the former because my internet connection at home is down. I logged a "support chat" with Verizon today, and they kept telling me to resume the chat from home. I kept pointing out that I had no internet access, and couldn't do so - the entire reason for the call. Then I had to run a program from home. But again, no internet access.
This feels like a pretty easy concept to master for support techs. So, anyway, looks like it's man-movies and some sort of craft-project with the dog, for me!
