hello, world.

Ah, excellent. Everything seems to be working. Sorry for the radio silence today. Last week Southern California Edison informed us that we might suffer a planned power outage today, and I foolishly assumed this meant the lights might go out for half an hour at some point during the morning. Nope. The lights went out at 8:30 am, a whole bunch of big trucks with gigantic reels of thick cable pulled up, workers did mysterious things all day, and at 5:30 pm the lights came back on.

So….did anything interesting happen while I was gone?
