No, it wasn't all hype. Just got power back an hour ago. I've already cleaned the bathroom (somewhat), the refrigerator, done the dishes and I'm working on laundry.
You might wonder about bathing, but I spent two and a half hours earlier tonight, while it was still light, boiling water and taking a bath that way. I also washed my hair. I was just lying in bed feeling sort of clean, and marveling at the wonder of it, when THE MIRACLE HAPPENED.
I am one happy woman. It's not over, but it is sure is better.**
** Unless, that is, Israel and Iran really are going to war. Edgy Adji's claim that Iran is devoted to Israel's destruction does not exactly deserve the Nobel peace prize, but I bet the Nordics are discussing that already.

Tonight we are the greatest power. You were born to consume power. Every one of you. You were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over.
WV = shines
No joke. Blogger is making me tear up a bit. ;)
I must admit that I was thinking dark thoughts about green power. The sheer labor involved in keeping clean and keeping things clean without electricity reminded me once again that energy is the economy, because power = efficiency.
Guess my thermodynamics professor was wrong, then.
But yeah, the more power you have available, the more you can get done, and the greater your effective wealth.
"Mark - is that "tear up" or "fear up". Hal, is that you?"
It was gear up, because this economy is about to go into overdrive!
WV - impleig
IMP: "Their behavior is described as being wild and uncontrollable... fond of pranks and misleading people... leading travellers astray in places with which they were not familiar."
leig: "to allow, let, permit"
Many of our leaders carry concealed impleigs (imp permits).
It's been happening continuously for a couple of days. A quick google search suggests maybe it's an infected ad?
Firefox from work and home.
I use Firefox, but I'm back on 3.6 whatever (latest security updates). I don't get this. And I don't have ads.
FWIW, I'm on Firefox 3.6.20
No problem today, no idea what the glitch might have been...
AI self-awareness is proch-ing quickly.
