Sometimes I don't think my tinfoil hat is on tight enough. Friday the 13th, I get up, put the coffee on and fire up the computer. The first thing I notice is that my Blog is down. The second thing I notice is that my e-mail server is down.
Then I shrugged and made myself a cup of coffee. What was I thinking? At that point, I should have broken out the 30-06 and scanned the sky for black helicopters.
Just kidding. I'm not that paranoid. Maybe I should be, as we all know there are weirdos out to get us.
I soon discovered the rest of the Internet was up and running. Nothing major appeared to be happening.
I do like to check in on the world. You never know when some disaster might be going down. Stuff happens. Just ask the Japanese. If my Internet connection is down, I'll turn on the FM radio and see if the stations are up and running. Should my local station go down, (it has happened during ice storms) then I'll see what I can pick up on my shortwave. Should everything be off-line, I'd have some serious concerns.
Today, it appears the end of the world was postponed once more. My wife and I took my daughter, granddaughter, and a bottle of wine for a leisurely sail. Might as well, as the jack booted thugs weren't coming for me after all.
