I love technology. My idea of a perfect vacation is two weeks in a fancy hotel in some metropolitan city—stateside or abroad—surfing the Web and watching TV and movies, stopping occasionally to shop, take in a museum and eat great local food, all of which requires technology working at it's electronic best.
Over the course of yesterday and today, here at the swank offices of BW, we lost Internet and e-mail access and our phone system went down. Fortunately the server we use to get the paper put together stayed strong, and everything is (mostly) up and running again. It was tough, though, and our increasingly heavy reliance on e-mail and Google was brightly illuminated by the light of the BSOD.
