“Again, many here are underestimating the govt.”
No, we know exactly what the government has; we built it, we were employed by it, we engineered it, we trained it, we supplied it, we created it. We know, you don’t, but we do.
You seem to think government is this magical beast that come from on high with God-like powers. We know otherwise.
Right on. And more importantly, we are the IT staff who maintain it.
As programmers, we control their software. As DBAs, we control their data. As systems administrators, we control their servers. They do nothing unless we allow it. They are deaf, dumb, and blind without us.
So to your point, Lady Lucky, that 90% of us won't hear anything in the first 24 hours ... realize that the IT staff will know of any such plans in advance. The first wave of our defense against such actions, will be software-based. So the warning will go out in advance.
