Got Water?

A hat tip to Bluesgal who alerted me of this one via email at when she saw it.

Hackers managed to shut off water at a central Illinois pump station in what could be the first known foreign cyber attack on our critical infrastructure.

Notice how in the same article, despite the fact that the hackers DID gain access and DID shut off water, the DHS spokesman says that there is no credible threat. So says he from his secret bunker where I'm pretty sure THEY all have water.

In the list of human needs, water is only second to AIR. If you are dependent upon other people for yours, then start working on fixing that right away. Rain catchment and wells are both very good options and the best systems are diversified systems. Without water, you have NOTHING.
