Humans have been forced to temporarily interact with their dogs or cats -- perhaps both -- after PetNet's internet-controlled smart feeder system suffered a blackout.

For $149, the company provides a web-enabled dog/cat feeder that is pre-programmed to dispense food stuffs at certain time and portion sizes.

But PetNet warned customers [...] that all was not well in its virtual animal kingdom as it was "experiencing some minor difficulties with a third party server. This is being investigated."

[...] "You may experience a loss of scheduled feeds and failed remote feedings. Please ensure that your pets have been fed manually until we have resolved this issue."

    How do I mod you Both Interesting and Spam at the same time?

    Kudos for braving the heat.

    I spend a lot of time walking for exercise and boredom prevention. Someone said I should take up dog walking for small money. Problems: Not particularly fond of dogs. Most are too chubby to keep up. And then I'd have to pick up after them, and carry bags of shit around.

    Nope. Not going to turn recreation into a job.

    No, you are mistaken. I've always had this sig.
