What if they pulled the plug

Great article by an Australian technology reporter Brad Howarth -

The scarier part from me that most people dont realise is that we (city slickers) are no more than 3 days away from running out of food at any one time.

So take a simple solar flare event that knocks out not one telstra exchange but everyone on the eastern would we fare then Eg do you think a supermarket could place orders with pen and paper to the distribution warehouse.

Yes yes i know most people will go sure sure....but with 8-10% possibilities of a solar event in the 2010-20 have to wonder if we are worrying about the right things some days.
