Bottom line? My guess is that within 4-6 hours there would be scattered blackouts and brownouts in numerous areas, within 12 hours much of the system would be unstable, and within 24 hours most portions of the United States and Canada, aside from a rare island of service in a rural area near a hydroelectric source, would be without power. Some installations served by wind farms and solar might continue, but they would be very small. By the end of a week, I’d be surprised if more than a few abandoned sites were still supplying power.
It doesn’t look like much, but this is a good step forward for us in testing our data from the accelerometer. We’re going to try and use this to figure out when players are running or not, and also to count paces.
Left 4 Dead 2: Valve knows world-building.
Children of Men: Indescribably Fantastic.
