Internet disruptions

My primary Internet service is having occasional outages today.

Can't say for sure, but I'd guess the heat wave is a factor. Components in the service chain may be overheating. Or maybe it's just that so many folks are staying in, the capacity in my area is being maxed out.

Either way, it suggests to me how vulnerable we are as we grow more dependent on digital Internet based services. And at the time same time, old-style analog services are getting harder and harder to come by.
