What To Do When Internet is Down: Art of Surviving Offline

When Internet goes down, we forget that rest of the Computer is still working. It seems impossible, but even today, you can stay offline. I know it’s hard. But there are things you can do with your computer even offline, incredible as it may seem.

A failure in the power of the internet provider, the breaking of the modem or router, damage to the cable network or anything can be the cause for this.

Suddenly, all our certainties crumble. We find ourselves disconnected. We find ourselves in 1995. Let’s see what you can do when internet is down (while waiting anxiously to get back online).

Spring Cleaning

Disk CleanupLook at your workplace / cubicle, things are messy, dusty. It’s time to clean them and put it in organized manner.

Take a look at your Computer Desktop, there are plenty of empty folders, many of then with name “New Folder (X)”, Many images unclassified, right?

Well, it’s time to put things right. A messy desk makes you lose time and prevents you from finding what you’re looking for. Start by throwing old, deleting empty folders, empty Recycle Bin and delete duplicate files.

Safety and Backup

And speaking of safety, this is the perfect time to do a good anti-virus full system scan, those that require a lot of time, and for this reason you usually don’t do it.

And speaking of time, you can also take advantage of it to defragment the hard disk, one of the useful operation but often procrastinated. Of course, not to rely only on the Windows Defrag but rely on more powerful tools. Choose any of from the best Degragmenting software for Windows to do it.

Go Gaming or Watch a Movie

If there aren’t games already, classics never die. Go playing the old, irreplaceable timeless solitaire.

Not even games, then I am sure there are many Movies lying on disk which you never watched.

    The computer works without the internet :O 😉

    There is always something to do. I always relax and catch a movie when the internet goes down. Or more importantly, catch up on some sleep.
