Re: Backup

"I can't remember in the old Post office days having outages, phones just kept on working, or is that silver lining."

That's just silver lining, plus the fact that you would only notice if you were making a phone call at the time of the outage.

The chances of you noticing the outage were proportional to the number of teenage(*) kids you had.

(* 'teenage' back then meant 13 to 17, not 8 to 35 like it does now.)
