With my head down in the specifics of technology so much, I tend to forget about what all of this we use relies so much on.. power.
I can debug and test, patch and peruse to my heart’s content, but if there’s no electricity there’s not much hope of anything happening… like a castle built upon the sand.
Today the power went out not just in my building, but seemingly my whole section of town since the traffic lights were out as well. With no power comes no responsibility it seems (and yes I’m looking forward to Kick Ass)… so right now I’ve gone to the local Barnes and Noble to piggy back on their working electricity and internet, hoping to see the two home computers come online on Skype to know when to go home..
….oh joy; school just called to tell me that the kids are being let out early, so I’m the one that gets to deal with my child’s withdraw of moving objects, tv, and video games. We might have to venture out into the world.
Update: power came back on, machines rebooted and signed into Skype.. got to watch the dog freak out.
