No Computers

The university's internet service provider was having problems yesterday, so the university was without computers for the large portion of the day. I was amazed at how things seemed to come to a halt and how even the basic functions of the university were compromised. We were still able to access files and things that were stored simply on the university network, but we were unable to access just about everything else. Early in the day, someone sent an e-mail to the campus computer guru asking about the problem. (The e-mail never left the campus network, so it went through.) He sent back a reply, "Our internet provider is having trouble. There's nothing we can do about it." That's real comforting....
