Well ... dang-nabbit ... Ah! There we are!
Hi. Nice to see y'all again. Just spent the last hour in the great intergalactic bit-bucket. Seems like someone between here and Mount Pleasant decided to destructively test the fibre network.
Man ... we are waaaay too dependent on these damn things. I think every bit of commerce three counties wide just came to an abrupt and complete standstill for a full hour.
As much as I love working with and fiddling with these silly devices ... folks ... there's just gotta be a better way! One trained monkey on a backhoe could damn near kill us all! <..
