To put it mildly — I did not have a very fun computer evening. I started using my desktop again today for the first time in like weeks. The power went off due to them doing maintenance on the building. I am glad I was here. I set my computer to automatically turn back on after a power failure.

It took me another good 0.5 hours on the local street to get to my front door because I could not see more than 10 feet in front of me. read more ‘Snow is fail.
