Keeping my streak

Hi everyone! I've got a little problem:

Tomorrow is the Jewish new year holiday,and it will last two days. I will have no access to the computer from this evening till Saturday. I've got one streak freeze, and plenty of lingots to buy another one, but I just won't be able to do so.

Anything I can do? It keeps me motivated, and I advanced a lot in the last two months :(

С новым годом, שנה טובה ומתוקה and a happy sweet new year everyone!

I'm afraid not. Just say Shalom to the streak.

That script which you showed I presume was Russian and Hebrew

Is this restriction on use of technology only for TVs, computers and cellphones or all devices? If yes, how do you cook or tell time ? What about electric bulbs/lights? I am really intrigued. I can understand your problem. Twice I lost long streaks because I was traveling and had no access to the internet. Now next year, I will be away for 2 weeks, traveling most of the time. I think duo should allow us to buy streak freezes in bulk.

The problem is with any electrical device. As for cooking, it's done in advance and we heat it on a hot plate that is set to turn on automatically on a certain time. we don't touch the light bulbs, they are either left on or set to turn off automatically at night. It's actually nice to have one day a week without technological distractions, this three days in a row is a rare occasion.

Thanks for all the comments, and hopefully by next time it happens Duo will have a solution:)
