Welcome to the cloud...

Sorry we run it and it might be down when you really want to use it.

You see, "the cloud" is just an euphemism for "someone elses computer that you have no control over". If I were in charge of Parliament (I'm not the sovereign, sorry) I'd have the servers under direct control. Of course if you are the "queen of america" (or believe you are) you DO have your own server and control all of its actions, which makes it easier to erase "bad things" when you want to.
