mnemex thinks I'm being a little silly, as we have more time by far where there isn't a blackout than when there is.
I am not being silly. I am not being paranoid. I am being sensible and applying the experiences of 2003 and 2006 (I think that's the correct year.)
womzilla: What, it's not as if you've had a ten day power outage -- oh wait, yes you have.
And I have zero confidence that it won't happen again. So, how do we get this wonderful new FIOS future without chopping down our safety net?
