I’m told there was no breach of data or anything like that, and it’s business as usual as people there are texting and still sending emails and they actually might — gasp — communicate with that arcane implement known as the telephone. It looks like the computers could stay off going into Friday. This is certainly unusual but a sign of the times we live in, unfortunately. If it is more serious, we’ll let you know.
