Look at me, I have a cable modem! Hurray. I also theoretically have cable TV now, but since I don't have a television yet, I don't know that for sure.
Technology increases everyone's expectations of each other, and freelancing means making oneself available to clients at almost any time of day. Sometimes I think I have less control over my time as a freelancer than I did when I was a salaried employee.
The cable modem gives me yet another e-mail address, and I already had to set up another new e-mail address last week, to join a list-serve for one of my clients. Now I have four e-mail addresses that I know about, and if I let myself, I'd do nothing all day but check them to see whether anyone was trying to get in touch with me. Good grief.
