I hate it when technology fails. This morning I was in the middle of replying to a post here on TB, and my ISP's name server went down. Suddenly, no more web access. Had to save off the reply in a Word document, move it over to the other machine (which uses a different system), and post it from there. We come to depend on our technology, don't we? The moral of the story seems to be, "always have a backup". Truth be told, that's one of the reasons I have "two of everything" when it comes to basses, amps, and cabs. Once I had an amp die in the middle of a gig, and that was enough to leave this lesson indelibly etched in the engrams of my brain. Has your technology ever malfunctioned at a critical moment? What did you do?
