The way most everyone is reacting, it is clearly deeply unsettling--nay, frightening--to have our tools offline. With the drop-dead deadlines for important reports quickly approaching, and all of us working at remote sites, connectivity is an absolute necessity.

Some of our connections were restored, but not all, and it quickly has become apparent how critical it is that we be able to talk to each other and write to each other and send each other vital information. We've always know this in theory, but loss of the interactions has brought it quite vividly home to us.

Without the ability to exchange information and share our ideas, we're much less effective, less human. No wonder people in institutions feel the loss of connections so acutely.

Anyway, I'm still working in semi-luddite mode. Back to the future, as it were. I like paper and pencil (much like I enjoy the feel of real books), much as I love the computer and the kindle.

It's all good.

p.s. CrochetLady's comment (previous entry) about not letting the manual put me to sleep made me laugh. Hubby took a picture of me "reading" the DOS instructions, sound asleep, with the light still on and the book open across my chest. To this day, I've never found a better sleep aid than the DOS manual.
