Re: Three weeks without internet?
"...productivity would be through the roof".
Nope - everything would come to a grinding halt. We had a couple of outages at my previous employer (where I did desktop support/server admin/network maintenance and troubleshooting).
When I noticed everyone was sitting around, drinking coffee and playing solitaire, I asked why they were not working (out of curiosity - we had been outsourced to another company, so technically it was none of my business), only to be told that they cannot do anything or communicate with anyone, since the network is down.
So I said "How did we work five years ago, before we had e-mail?"
It just never crossed their minds that they could still call on the phone and send faxes.
Tbh, some people really did not appreciate that.
