Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -

tricky to run any code, of any variety, when you have quadrillions of invisible bugs absorbing all electricity, though. If you can get anything to boot up and run your program, good for you

If they were always on, and turned on before the blackout, sure, makes sense (if difficult to keep powered that long, but maybe they also absorb enough to keep going). Since they aren't always running (we'd see electricity working around them all the time), it would be 'tricky' to go from off to on there. Maybe there's some sort of extreme low-powered 'sleep mode' that keeps them powered on but mostly dormant?
