Is This A Virtual Solemnity ?

I'm wondering if this is a solemnity on the internet?  Not that the internet is a diocese or ordinariate, but given that today is the feast of St Isidore of Seville, patron saint of the internet, one wonders where we stand liturgically in this virtual world.  There's one for the liturgists among us.  

Anyway, happy feast day to all of you.  I hope the holy bishop of Seville, Doctor of the Church, will watch over all of us as we use the internet, that it may be used for the glory of God and the proclamation of the Gospel and not the degradation of men and women.

We can celebrate this feast, according to the rules of Lenten commemorations, anything more solemn and any festive events may well have to be virtual, I presume.
