"The End of the World",...for some.
Today, half of America’s internet shut down when hackers unleashed a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It’s still unclear exactly who carried out the attack and why, but regardless, the event served as a demonstration of how easily large swaths of the web can be wiped out if attacked by determined hackers.
Well it's the end of yet another part of the world. The unprotected parts of the Web. Ya know where 99% of those under 30 live?
Not a scratch. I was sleeping. That, and I have nothing irreplaceable on this damned contraption. It's like TV which I don't watch anymore. All TV could be shut down for months,...hell years, and I wouldn't notice.
Same with this Web crap.
Go ahead shut it all down ya maniacs. I'll be reading a book anyway while ya do it. Books are amazing. No batteries or plugins needed no special apps. Ya just pick it up, and read it.
They function perfectly for centuries at a time. Although you have to supply your own candles tea, and cat. Otherwise they work fine.
