Lenten Resolutions for the Socially Wired

This being Ash Wednesday, I thought I'd post my Lenten resolutions. The central point of the season is penitence, one of the manifestations of which is the denial of something legitimately enjoyable to oneself. As a socially wired netizen, my pleasures come the Internet and so in the spirit of the season, this is where I will deny myself.


1) Slashdot, Facebook, and Plurk only once a day and for no more than 15 minutes in total.

2) No more than three windows or tabs open at any given time, and all must be related to the task at hand.

3) No multitasking. Finish all work without distraction.

And on top of that, the usual food fasting and abstinence. With a smile, of course; with a smile.

I'll be scarce until Easter. See you then.


  1. i've been thinking along similar lines... Have not decided yet. But my hats off to you..

  2. Hi Dom!

    During mass yesterday, I was actually thinking the same thing hehe.
