I would hate to think of the implications to Egyptian businesses (especially financial institutions) come monday if the internet access is not restored :(

A newsletter worth reading:
http://gary.stanley.net/cyber_news.htm
I met Gary Stanley while I was about to do my 1st
avast! Security Seminar in Arizona. As a matter of fact,
he and I did a double performance that day since through no fault of any one,
Gary and I had both been booked as the speaker of the day.
Gary at that time was a brand new convert by switching from AVG to avast!.
I'm happy to say, he still endorses avast! Free as his recommended antivirus program.
Thanks Gary for being a fiend and hope this brings you a few additional readers. :)

I woke up this morning and found that my water pressure was almost non existent.
After calling the water company, at 6:00 AM, I was assured that someone would check into the matter.
At 8:00 AM I was informed that no one in Meadow Lake had any water since the pump house was completely frozen.
The representative from the water company said that they had no idea how long we would be out of water.
New Mexico just isn't equipped to handle -10 deg. Fahrenheit with a wind chill temp of -23 F.
Having no water isn't any fun, it's hard to flush the toilet without water. It's impossible to take a bath or
a shower.
The worst is that you need water to make coffee....  :'( :'(

I had that happen and it was not even Winter.  ;)

A construction worker hit the water mains to my bulding with a backhoe and the only way I knew was that I could not make my usuall morning coffee.  :'(
I went to a local 24 hours milk store and purchased a 12 pack of bottled water and was able to make my coffee. ;D
I now keep at least 3 bottles of water handy for such an emergency. 8)

Life before coffee is impossible!  

Folgers Breakfast Blend is my choice.

I'm a drug-addict, I'm addicted to caffeine. ;D ;D ;D

Coffee is my drug of choice. ;D ;D ;D

Never cared for Folger's, it's too bitter. I prefer Maxwell House but lately I've been buying the Master Chef brand at Walmart. It's put out by the Sara Lee Company and is much cheaper than even the Great Value brand. It's not bad tasting at all either. I get the big can here for $4.98.

I like Maxwell House instant ;)
One level teaspoon in a cup of hot water from the microwave that has a little milk added makes me instantly happy.  ;D
