on 9/11 most telco lines into and out of NYC were congested or
non-functioning.  Even cell phones were impacted because they ultimately use
wirelines.  But, not withstanding all of the telco problems.... AIM, IRC,
and email worked best for communications.

Now, whether or not you would be able to solve problems without vocal
communications remains to be seen.  Ultimately it revolves around having the
ability to adequately define the problem in writing as well as having good a
reader ready to interpret your message.
