This almost happened in 2012!

Wouldn't we have been digitally 'cooked' if this were to occur in our ever increasing,
technological age?

I haven't read what is in the info you have posted above....but I remember reading something about this issue a while back...AND I think it is bound to happen at some point.

One time I went to the grocery store and their computers went down....NO ONE could buy anything because they had no provision for this kind of thing happening. THAT is a very BIG mistake!
What did they do back in the "olden days?" They did things MANUALY. ...and they need to get set up once again for this kind of thing because it is already happening and will not get better with time and crazy world happenings. Believe me.....

Hi bean, the same thing happened at the library. Their computers went down and they couldn't find a book.
They no longer had the Dewey Decimal system to fall back on.

Don't even THINK about the banks! UGH!

It looks like all of "our eggs are in one basket"!
Why would we do that????

Besides stupidity and lack of foresight?

Some of it boils down to an unwillingness to respect consequences...see what could happen and make provisions....having a bottom line in ego based... put your head in the sand mentality. On another level...it must be contrived to be that way or it wouldn't be that way. Purposeful mapping of matters where ultimately someone has the upper hand. It's everywhere present across the board. WHO stands to gain from the chaos that is created from this kind of situation?
Those pulling the strings...THEY DO....who ever "they" are..........

Without power/computers... the stores couldn't even open the drawers to get into the registers.

Where is that Brinks truck when you need it?

You must be right, bean. It should be common sense to have a back-up plan.

So in other words we are looking at...
Stupidity
NO common sense
Hubris
Evil agenda?

Even the Doctor's offices are putting all of our medical information on their computers.

Pharmacies
Transportation
Banks
Stores

How easily technologically advanced cultures are overcome . . . We are so naive. I started crying PAPER BACKUP immediately when everything started being computerized. imo, its no accident that we are being rushed headlong into becoming totally dependent on our very vulnerable grid.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
