At 20:11 Skynet goes online. As a result of temporal interference by Sarah Connor, her son John, Miles Dyson, and the T-800 destroying Cyberdyne headquarters and all backups of the research in 1995, the date for Judgment Day is moved to two days after activation which is Thursday April 21, 2011.

So, Skynet needed computing power. Where could it get it quickly and easily till it organized itself to branch out into the world's systems?

Amazon Web Services experienced a "networking event" and suddenly the capacity of their entire east coast region was unavailable to AWS customers, from late on the 19th extending into the 22nd. Meanwhile, Sony's Playstation Network, with 50 million units of the PS3 and it's 8 cell processing power, went offline during the same period.

Are we really supposed to believe more computing power just "became unavailable" over this 48 hour period than any time in the world's history, for completely coincidental reasons?!?!?

(PS. Yes.)
