So now imagine a big solar flare that takes out the global communications network for days or weeks. No phones, no banking, no services.

Ours is a fragile society.

Let me put it this way, Mr. Stepanek. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.

Well the problem wasn't my computer; (anyway not this time;) but with my server! It took them forever to replace a problem line! :roll: Not sure what your getting at; but there are some (9000 series computers out there! and one even advertises AI :mrgreen: 💻 ⌨️ 🖥!

I think he was referring to the HAL 9000
Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.
