Worst Case Scenario

This story about Comcast customers in the Houston metro area is really awful. First of all, on a personal level I'd kind of freak out a little bit if I wasn't able to obsessively read crap on the internets for several weeks. But the work aspects of it are truly horrifying.

This is the flip side of having remote employees -- if they are remote in places that are experiencing the same natural disaster that your Real Office is experiencing, you don't tend to get the disaster responsiveness you might could be hoping for. That's why everyone should hire telecommuters from New Mexico -- other than the occasional high wind, fire, or sand storm, there isn't a lot of catastrophic weather stuff that happens here.

Okay, we do have the plague. But it's highly treatable now. Really.
