Ripples of Decay

I’m now convinced that there are episodes, perhaps induced by sunspots or other amorphous forces, that cause sudden surges in technology-related problems. In the past 48 hours we’ve been experiencing DNS problems, server problems, network problems, and AOL email problems. Everything appears unrelated to everything else. Technology, of course, is expected to break. Why does it have to happen all at once, though?
