Not the end of civilisation but...

...when a computer virus really strikes you it sometimes feels like it.

The work network is a mess and I'm off to NY tomorrow for a week starting to wonder if anything I was hoping to do by 5pm will be done. We cannot use Outlook or even webmail - I am on a Mac so there shouldn't be a problem, but just in case, I've been asked not to. Come back MyDoom, all is forgiven...

In the meantime I am browsing. Paul Krugman's OpEds in the NYTimes (requires free registration) are only ever going to reinforce my view of the Bush administration but his penetrating and pithy analysis is always a great way to get the teeth grinding in the morning:

"Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists." So George Bush declared on Sept. 20, 2001. But what was he saying? Surely he didn't mean that everyone was obliged to support all of his policies, that if you opposed him on anything you were aiding terrorists.

Now we know that he meant just that.
