Have any of you had a technology failure just when you don't want it. I have had a couple over the last week and the timing could not have been more inconvenient. I wrote a hub on it on how Moccona saved the day. It makes one wonder how big business copes. Maybe you could add a comment or write a hub on it i would for one be interested !
When texas got that bad hurricane last year, we got the back-wind of it and it tore down trees and so many cities over here were without power for a whole week. It was horrible timing because I was at a concert at the time and they cancelled it about a quarter of the way through it. Then when I got home.. No way to charge my phone. I got used to it after the second day. Sitting back, relaxing with candles and a good book. I actually started to like it. I really wouldn't mind if we got another wind-storm. My novel I am writing on my hub deals with events in a apocalypse and one of the events is all electricity is taken out and people must cope with no electricity. I love technology. I play games all the time and love my netflix, but if technology ever failed... meh. I think i'd survive.

Keep those candles and paperbacks handy just in case. If technology fails, you may actually have to have a conversation with a real, live person

I've been here for almost two years now and have published 25 featured hubs. I calculated my average views per hub per day as 4. It is actually a bit better than that because the numbers involved the beginning period when I had only a couple of hubs and no views at all. But you Hubbers out there...

I got a bump up in pageviews on one Hub today and saw that it was traffic sent by "search dot conduit dot com." I had never heard of that, but when I investigated, I saw that it is operated by Google. Can anyone tell me what it is and whether any emotional response would be...
