Well in my experience, when I was younger and we didn't have electricity (seems hard to believe in this day and age) because my mother was working three jobs to support 3 girls, the Internet/or computer didn't compare to needing food, clothing, bedding and/or shelter.  I understand maybe for some it has become a need but I still consider it a luxury.  I didn't mean to offend you John.
