There is a field office of US Geological Survey here that does Ocean research.
It is just a bunch of scientists working on coastal and deep ocean
stuff.  They
have been told to totally disconnect ALL machines, including laptops
from the Internet.  Since the office here is part of a team of six institutions
doing the same work, this has made it almost impossible for them to do any
work at all.
Your tax money at work.
Sigh.
