Internet Update

The recent windstorm took out several towers belonging to our intended ISP.  Repairing that puts them several days behind.  I don't know yet if this will impact the fishbowl schedule.  I will keep you posted.

However, it's a reminder that society is putting more and more weight on very flimsy systems.  They're not secure.  They're easily damaged.  The more that relies on them, the more damage done every time they go down, and outages are not rare.  So before you do things, stop and ask yourself: does it absolutely NEED to be online, or can it be done some other way with material less prone to breaking down?
