Anybody affected by the power cut won't be charged for 'any talk/test/data overages from 1200hrs Oct. 9 through 1159hrs oct 13.

I appreciate the gesture, as I won't be in any fire danger but 'disaster relief' is a bit much.

I'll hedge that with a contrite 'maybe'.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

FYI: Even new cell tower batteries seldom last more than 6 hours during a blackout.

Yep, it'll be interesting to see if cell companies can keep the gensets they're supposed to have there at the cell towers supplied with fuel during what will probably end up being a week-long outage.

Our power just came back on after being shut off for about 18 hours. There were definitely no working cell towers in our area today, at least for Verizon and AT&T.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
