A survey has concluded that techies are more traumatized by being cut off from the net than by getting divorced or moving house.
The BBC News story linked to from BoingBoing says:
[But] spare a thought for the techies in computer support. About a fifth feared for their jobs if they did not get the e-mail system back up and running within a day... ...when something goes wrong with e-mail for a week, the experience can be more traumatic that moving home, getting married or divorce, at least for a third of those taking part in the survey.
