"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Guns, Ammo, Canned Goods, Bottled Water, Generators and Gasoline

Our computers were out at work today.   They just came back up.   Basically out for 3-4 hours, and the place practically shut down.  

My comment to one of the secretaries (only half facetious):  

If the computers went out completely, I'd give us two weeks before we're shooting each other in the streets for food.

The fragility of interdependent systems that no one fully understands.   Get used to it.
