I have gotten this question from everyone from my wife's mother, who knows NOTHING about technology, to people that I would think would know better. And it's always with a little sneer like they know something I don't. I guess people see me looking at it too often, so they think I'll be lost without it. I just usually tell them that if there is a shutdown, I'm going to go crazy and kill everyone within a 10 mile radius. All while chuckling to myself. That makes them go away.
Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war
