8 Prepared for emergencies

  1. Just last night, I was explaining to my boyfriend why I didn't want to go for "full unbundling" with my new Internet service provider, and it sounded exactly like that! Thanks, Mox!

  2. Get out of my head Mox!

    Mrs Eutychus and I have 2 ISPs with 2 separate routers, 3 phone lines and a 3G USB stick to stay online. Our power outlets are surge protected.

    This weekend, that didn't stop the lightning taking out my PC motherboard via the phone line running through one of the routers... but we're still here!

    Also, see IP over Avian Carriers. Seems the pigeons might actually be faster...

  3. Hahaha, great as always.

    I'm doing a long trip and my only requirement was to have a good internet connection at my destinations. I can not have a toilet or running water but I NEED a good access to communication. In the bagage: notebook, smartphone, internet cable (for the case wifi doesn't work), connectors, adapters and, of course, two online phone numbers.

    I SO do understand Mox! :-)

  4. I just made the switch from translator to PM. I'll do my very best never to be evil, and I'll keep reading your blog to remind myself that translators should be treated more respectfully :)

  5. A long-time reader, first-time commenter here. This one nailed it so well that I just had to copy it to my blog – linking back here, of course. Keep up the great work! :)

  6. Too funny, we love it! We do back-ups of our external back-ups.... we are a bit obsessive that way as well. We've been very lucky in terms of technology in the last 10 years. No crashes; fingers crossed!

  7. Brilliant as usual, Mox. Translation as profession might seem like a reclusive hermit who would shut himself up from the world. But no, we can't miss out on any communication.
