This weekend we had a few internet connection issues at home. As the in-house IT guy, I had a natural obligation to fix the issue right away. After all, my wife, son and his two sisters needed their connections restored.
I worked to diagnose the issue and later resolve it.
It was about 30 minutes after the network was restored I noticed that my son was on his laptop and chrome was on a page that looked like what one would expect if the network connection was lost. This wasn’t the case. In fact, this was intentional, he had discovered a game of sorts in the chrome browser. This game involves a T-Rex that is running across the screen where you the player jump over objects, later ducking under objects also.
To activate the game: Just press the space-bar or the up arrow key and the game begins. I like to give a big thanks to my son for teaching me something very interesting and fun.

So what was it that my son taught me?
It wasn’t the game specifically but more so how a non-ideal situation can allow for the possibility to be innovative and make the best of what you have and to always have a little fun.
Thanks, AJ, Love Dad
One reply on “There is no Internet connection, and what my son taught me”
Wonderful little toasts at first reading this made me feel like I was getting old working in a technical sector. Then I thought to myself I’m not getting old I’m just focused on my current responsibilities.
I miss the days where we could explore and experiment
