    I work for Microsoft. In their Cloud Computing department. (Billing department, so don’t ask any technical questions, lol) When the product works, it works very well. When it sucks, it really sucks! Fortunately, they’re getting better.

    Still, I wouldn’t take everything off my server just yet.

    cdward, as a fan of Hitchhiker’s, I find your comment hilarious! (Course, if he really WERE watching reruns, I’d be on the couch next to him.:)

    Funny story, there really is a Dawson Creek, in British Colombia, Canada.

    My grandparents were driving to Alaska because my grandfather had just gotten an army position there training new recruits on satellite technology. (This was in the 1960s.) Interesting this was, my grandmother had 3 kids in diapers at the time, and they made the whole trip without much fuss. A lot of exciting things happened on that trip (they were driving all the way from Florida) but my favorite story was about when they were trying to find Dawson Creek, BC.

    My grandfather, being a man, and a man from New Jersey, what’s more, didn’t need no stinkin’ directions. So he’s driving down the Alcan Highway, which at that time was still under construction, in pitch black looking for Dawson Creek to stop for the night. They drove for miles without seeing anything. Finally, my grandmother pointed out a small cluster of lights ahead, and finally urges my grandfather to pull over and ask how to get to Dawson Creek.

    The lights turned out to be some sort of outpost or something. My grandfather walked to the first door, and pounded on it. A bleary eyed man answered, and, seeing my grandfather, and the jeep behind him, dropped his jaw nearly to the ground. He stared with wide eyed amazement at what he saw. My grandfather began rambling on about getting to Dawson Creek. The stranger interrupted him, mumbled something about Dawson Creek being 30 miles back, and grabbing my grandfather by the lapels asked him how on earth he got to this out post.

    My grandfather shrugged “We drove.”

    “Drove?! You can’t drive! There’s no road out here! They fly us in here by helicopter!”

    Turns out my grandfather had found a ledge along the edge of the mountain barely wide enough for the jeep. He managed to drive it in pitch black without falling hundreds of feet to the valley below. What’s even more of a miracle is that they managed to drive back without falling, find Dawson Creek. and continue their journey to Anchorage.

    There were many other exciting stories on that drive, but they’ll wait for another time.

    My grandfather used to make me read the encyclopedia every summer. I got as far as the G’s before I gave up.

    Still, I learned a lot. :)

    Grap, we’re not saying mankind has no effect on the planet.

    Just not as big a one as they’re making it out to be.

    As my grandmother always said, “No story is ever any bigger than the news media wants it to be. It’s called ‘crisis management’. They create a ‘crisis’, then they manage it.”

    Everyone should be responsible. Do their part. Recycle. Turn off lights. All that kinda stuff. I do it every day.

    But I refuse to go into panic mode because it isn’t nearly as bad as everyone would have you think.
