Streak Freeze Insurance

Yesterday, for whatever reason, I could not access the internet. This had never happened to me before. I thought "well, there goes my 315 day streak". Fortunately I had used some lingots to buy a one day streak freeze insurance many months ago. Today my computer is working fine again, and I hastened to do 2 things: meet my intact daily goal, and of course buy a new streak freeze. To anyone who is motivated by their streak, please buy that insurance if you already have not. You never know when you may need it!

yeah, i keep them up but try not rely on them unless i'm sick (migraine or something) or have some other catastrophe (like having to spend two days cleaning moldy carpets).

Yes. For 10 lingots it's cheap insurance. There's really no reason to lose a streak unless you have no internet access for more than a day.
