    In reality, if the power goes out, I have a generator and a fuel supply that I can milk for a month. We heat with wood and have a well. Plenty of dry goods to last a month or more, too.

    In the mean time, I will enjoy my electronic luxuries knowing full well they can get blown up at the drop of a hat.

    I do enjoy a walk in the woods on a sunny fall day, though. Nothing can stop that.
    Moss, I was not talking about your personal computer files being zapped...I was talking about the cyber infrastructure of our whole country going down after it is used by foreign enemy hackers to destroy our power grid, stock market, banking records, water and other utility distribution centers...just imagine the result of all accounts payable and receivable records of all firms on line being erased...Imagine all of this...Your personal files or mine are of little consequence...

    I am only suggesting that too much of anything is usually not a good idea...When too much of our society, infrastructure and very lives depend on some computer and technology.....I just don't feel secure...It is not invulnerable....

    Well, look at it this way... if the whole infrastructure barfs, we'll all be in the same boat, paper money will have no meaning and you will get murdered for your gold and/or fuel. Yikes! That gives one the warm and fuzzies, don't it!

    I think I was born at the right time...Too much tech. - people will forget how to think and how to interact with each other on a personal basis...no more interpersonal relationships...not my cup of tea..These folks will not even have a clue how to survive without modern conveniences, electricity and grocery stores...God help most folks if the power goes out for good...I could go on forever about the downside of this technology

    What do you guys think...? maybe I am a Luddite ?
    That was great, thanks for posting.

    Technology is great and has the potential to make our lives a living paradise. It, instead, will be the means to enslave the human race in the not so distant future. Forget nuclear war, terrorism, plagues, meteorites, tsunamis etc.
    I'm not a fear or armageddon mongrel but thats the way I see its headed and in a short amount of time. Nothing we can do about it either-the future is already written.
    I am an IT professional-have been since the 80s and I have seen how far we've come just in 30 years-the leap forward is accelerating faster every day.
