I just hope RIM doesn't decide to reschedule the outage for March 29th. I'm going to be on a road trip driving home during that time, and me and my friends are using my Blackberry's GPS as a backup for directions, since we're going to be in an unfamiliar area (we'll have a printout, but if we miss a turn, a printout doesn't reroute itself XD).

Rescheduled: RIM Scheduled Outage March 29, 2008
During the normally scheduled window (2a - 6a EDT)
A full 4 hour outage is scheduled for all BIS & BES users in the Americas for RIM database maintenance.
Any BES connected to srp.na.blackberry.net is expected to be impacted.
No mail / activations will be possible during this outage.
This is a 100% outage

As one with some knowledge in the fields of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, I can tell you why this outage would be a concern.
BlackBerry is about the most portable, reliable multifunction comm and data platform extant. It is versatile enough to allow connection, synching, and mixing with any other system out there. It also offers good battery life. So, from scheduling personnel to emailing requisitions for materials to calling home, nothing will set up and get busy as fast as a berry.
And why you need to adjust your service for those who might die? You don't. You need to adjust for the paying customers who might save them. Or you. See if you can maybe find a perspective that makes your inclusion among the human race not so much of a waste, huh?
