Yesterday afternoon, the company that acts as our ISP at work disappeared from the face of the earth. OK not really, but it seemed that way for all intents and purposes. An electrical transformer blew somewhere near their building and their backup systems only had about an hour of life. I watched in horror as our internet connection went dead after sputtering for a bit, their website disappeared, our website disappeared and to top it all off, the outage took their telephone systems with it as well. There was exactly one way for me to find out what was going on, but I didn’t really want to drive all the way across town to check on them. Instead I waited, and waited until, finally, their power came back and I could get someone on the phone to explain what was going on.
In retrospect it was almost kind of comical watching them disappear like that, but then I’ve always had a warped sense of humor. 🙂
