Camping? I want to go camping!
Actually, it's a serious Electronics Fast. Yes, we have our computers for classwork and stuff, but video games, TV (not that we get any reception anyway), web browsing and the like were supposed to have been thrown out the window (metaphorically speaking).
And, yes, I agree that they should have announced it in advance. I had JUST posted that I was doing the "week of Gil" when they announced it.
