it depends on what you are going into....if its going to get you hire pay and a better chance at further promotion then go for it...but if it isn't going to help you in your current job then whats the point?
I wouldn't say college is "useless", but it certainly can be a waste of money if you don't do it right. I think continuing education is very important, whether it be through life experiences or classes. Unfortunately, the corporate world does put great value on a degree...even if you're a ding-dong or your degree has nothing to do with a job you're applying for. It's a wacky world!
The other replies above made good points...depends on your personal situation and goals.
I say go for it! I decided to pursue my Master's Degree (MBA) right after I graduated with my Bachelors (knowing I wouldn't go back to school once I worked full time). Nothing will substitute experience but the Master's Program helped me implemented and enhance our family business plan. A degree will not guarantee success but just a "tool" to help you on the way. It was a great learning experience and would do it all over again.
I stopped looking at the stocks.
I'll be ok as I always prepare for stuff like this.
I have had a conference or two cancelled.
I hated going to those things anyway, so I'm good there too. I get a few days back.
I'm sure my business will suffer a little, but can use the internet for most...
Do I need a "fax modem"? A software program?
My Windows XP has a fax program in it, but says I need a fax modem.
What do I really need? Using dial-up for the web, do I have to be off-line to fax?
