Default Amazing how things get screwed up when a major internet provider goes toes up.

About 0930 yesterday a major internet provider went 'toes up' here in Southern Oregon (may have been more far reaching than that). Partially up now, but with some interesting exceptions. Example: if a e-mail/posting has a link ... no can do/go there.

Did a grocery store run yesterday and they had a fellow stationed at the door apologizing telling folks that they could only take cash or cheques. No cards (debit or credit).

Did an 'ok' and hit the Subway shop for lunch ... same deal.

What a total pain where one sits.

This happened in Anchorage during the Labor Day weekend due to the 'first' big wind and rain event that they had there this fall. I was among the lucky because I was carrying cash in my pocket. I seldom have more than a few dollars in my pocket but had about 40 or so that day and so was able to grab some lunch.

I think that when the national weather service is calling for an extreme weather event you would be better served by going to the bank and withdrawing cash than to rush to the grocery to buy the last carton of milk.
