Quote from: Baruch on May 22, 2019, 07:11:30 AMCorrect, my old boss, and a college professor, never let his company get directly connected to the Internet, and that was in 1991. But now, like with some games, the app won't work without connectivity. See Office 365. You are owned, unless you can still use a pencil and paper.
Quote from: Cavebear on May 26, 2019, 08:20:44 AMThere was not much internet in 1991. But my strategy since it worked has been to divide my usuage among many info-stealing platforms and fake names a lot. I get few ads...
