Amazing how boring things get when the power goes out. It's been about 2hrs now.

Then I remembered a short wave radio I have. At least I have some classical music now.

@NYbill when the power goes out here it's ok the first hour - then the ups'es starts screaming at me - not that fun.

@theru @theru no UPS here. Computers are out! When this phone batt dies... I'll go find a cave, make a spear, and hunt for game.

@NYbill ha :) or you could relax and read a book - getting time of the internet and drama is never a bad thing

@tpheine @theru well, you MIGHT be on a whole other part of the globe! :P

This is local to me. 6 blocks in any direction and there is power.

@NYbill @tpheine we rarely have blackouts but when it tents to be when I'm 200km away or sleeping. Hopefully no blackout this night :-)

@theru @tpheine keep the steady payments coming in, Theru. You'll have no trouble.

Mr. Thomas, nice electrons you have there! It would be a shame if anything should happen to them...

This is where I love being on a double fed grid. My neighbourhood is right beside the hospital and linked into it. Most we usually get is a blip during fail over to the secondary path. Found out about it after we moved in. Total bonus considering how many power outages occur in the rest of the town.
@NYbill @theru

The in-flight entertainment malfunctioned briefly at the start of our flight, so I finally got started on reading "The Demon-Haunted World".

But then it started working, so it was all Marvel most of the trip.
@perloid It's up to me to make it good and make it go well. I appreciate the moral support!
@perloid Reviewing the video today. Then I'll find out. In the moment it felt so-so, but it got some people interested and gave rise to some very good questions.

@clacke Those are the criteria of success in my book. Maybe not world-shaking success but a positive outcome nonetheless. 👍
I couldn't watch live (though the feeds are good this year) but I'll have a look once it's on the server.
