Suddenly-Unlinked again!

I don't have to remind most of you that we are vulnerable to outages like we are having today in Humboldt! "Suddenlink, we are disconnected!" Oh, yes, I am using dial up.

Out all day. NO backup. No alternatives. It is amazing how much we have come to depend on this internet thing.

Must have been a Backhoe Induced Outage somewhere north of Eureka. We had no problem.

My favorite Gregg Foster quote for a story I did a while back was "We are one yahoo on a backhoe away" from disrupting the single fiber-optic cable. The first time a backhoe severed it a year or so back, I laughed thinking back on his statement. The second time was less funny now that I have Suddenlink and rely on broadband at home for work-related stuff.

Personally I favor stiffer penalties for disrupting internet service - how's the death penalty sound? :)

Kidding. Sort of.
