The Email Mutiny

My cousin is a member of Carrier Air Wing Fourteen (CVW-14) currently on board the USS Ronald Reagan. Our family gets brief updates from him about every three weeks or so, and he ended his last dispatch with a wry bit of humor on the email situation aboard the Reagan:

"I am on the mightiest warship in the world and we have only two computers that have email. This comes as a pain when there are 19 of us that need to get on. Our email server went down for 10 days just before we pulled in. The ship almost had a mutiny. 21st century and we almost went back to 2 cans and a string. That's the government for you."
