I was all set to do some posting this weekend, and then on 12/31 my broadband provider had an outage that lasted pretty much all day. Then on 1/1 Pacific Gas and Electric had a power outage–and the power is still out, 24+ hours later. The interactive voice response system that PG&E has is really neat: it offers to give you a status report by phone, using either your phone number or your customer ID. Except neither of them gave me any info. They also offer to call you back on your phone automatically when they have updates. Except that the feature never called me. It’s like a really neat system framework with no actual data in it. Meh.
Anyway, I imagine the blogosphere will get along fine without me for a couple days. Time to scrounge about for books that I’ve wanted to catch up on by flashlight..
