NEWSFLASH
March 6, 2006

Whole internet outage scheduled for today at 1 p.m., eastern time. You have just minutes left to backup every internet file you have or risk losing it all. Most financial institutions in utter panic as they frantically attempt to re-learn the use of the abacus to prepare for the loss of the internet.

This is not a drill ... burn all data to CD or DVD and they might just survive this internet outage. Flash drives/Jump drives will be vulnerable to invasion by remote virus at this desperate time. Hard drives will be deleted. This is the worst internet disaster since Galileo claimed the Earth moved around the Sun.

Keep in mind that all satellite TV will go down, most traffic lights (unless you live in a small city) ... and most of all ... you're going to lose your blog.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled surfing. Enjoy your last few moments of free surf, tomorrow you'll have to go outside and surf waves instead.

Ha ha ROTFL, that's nearly as hilarious as the "go spend on your credit cards now because it'll all be lost in the Y2K bug" gag of 1999

How will a internet outage (if such a thing were possible) lose data off stand alone hard drives?

Was there any reason for this post?

Hey Mrs. Aginoth, did you lose your sense of humor in a hunting accident? :>

Although this is only a joke....

The mother board went in my moms computer yesterday. I think you jinxed it! :P

reason for the post? ... the real question, here, if we'll dig deeply enough ... why do we post anything at all? what is the point of communicating with other beings? when all the world is simply interpretation and misinterpretation, why should we try when we are doomed to failure?

;)

my answer, as always, is the same answer that i give to 2 and 3 year olds who play the "why" game with the adults around them: why not?
(btw, if you say that with the right look on your face, that generally gets them to stop the "why" game)
