Yeah. A couple of years we had an electritity failure. I wanted to call somebody and luckily still had a phone that worked without being plugged into electricity. But I didn't have the company's number, and had arrogantly thrown away my paper phone directory months before that, because - you know - we keep phone numbers in Excel files or search those things online now, baby.

No, we don't - at least not if the damn thing stays black for hours ...

We moved to a new office recently, and the first day nothing worked. Network logins, various schemes to connect remotely to the old office, an incomprehensible VOIP phone system, it was a mess.

I had anticipated this and brought a lot of work with me (a lot of what I do is reviewing documents in hard copy, and I'd printed a bunch in advance and brought it with me that morning), so while everybody else was paralyzed, I was working away.
