    Work on getting another version of the internet up and running?

    Simplified down, it's just one big network.

    I reckon I'd lose that much time doing things 'manually'. Like, ringing people up for information and looking things up in the phone-book.

    I'd also be out of a job. Trying an online community of web developers is kinda reliant on the internet...

    I'd continue what I always was doing just without the Internet, probably would be more helpful in the long run and I wouldn't email but write letters. If I didn't have a computer, I'd just draw way more then I do and probably read more books.

    Umm, dunno.
    Collapse for two years myself probably.
    It'd take about that long to relearn how to live without it, and then it'd be back up and I'd inevitably make myself (too) dependent again.

    I really wouldn't mind all that much, it might even encourage some good habits. I'd probably start telephoning people more, or shock of shocks actually visiting them to say hello face-to-face! For longer distances, assuming the postal system survives, letters to friends and family would continue working well.

    For work, I'd probably have to change job (I'm a software developer for a company writing internet filtering software…) and the logical choice, without hesitation, would be to go back to archaeology. No need to be online with that!

    P.S. Why only two years, indefinitely would suit me just fine.
