Doesn't the internet show you how fragile everything has become in relying on it. Knock out the internet and see how easy things could be,well you know. in another post i put up regarding the war games, i mentioned a 1980s docudrama called threads, the title was given to demonstrate that all of modern day communications are connected by a thread and once an energy surge hits,all communications are lost between millions of people. We in the West rely too much on it all. While the net is a great invention for good things, i believe its a serious weakness to be so reliant on it. Almost every home and business can be cut off in an instant.

It is Tom but at least we have a choice. Have to be Betty Boop for me Mark.
Doubt anyone will remember 934Mhz CB radio but at the time there was a great deal of concern over microwaving your brain if you had a portable transceiver. We used to climb up a local well mountain with a beam antenna, 30 watt linear amp sending out some power on a Sunday afternoon. After a few years the frequency was snatched from us and re allocated for mobile phones. More money in it I guess?
