    Hello New People! :wavey:
    Welcome Back Old People! :beer:

    If you're going to be away for a bit (hint: that's more than just a day or two) then come tell us, so we know why you aren't posting! If you're new to the forum, introduce yourself here, so we know you aren't a spambot. If you're leaving permanently, then I'll expect another post in this thread in about a years time.

    Hey guys, just to let you know, I'm in the middle of a state wide power outage due to a freak storm here in Connecticut. I've had no electricity or net since saturday. And it may be another week before the power is restored. i'm using a public computer to leave messages. I don't know when I'll have power or net again. Even when the town is restored (as of this morning, over 60% in town have no power, I may still be offline for a while because the power and phone cables from the street to my building were broken by a falling tree. The power company is very slow in restoration. I've got water, hot water, a gas grill for cooking, and a fireplace. But no electric and little phone. I don't even have much cell service, because a number of cell towers were damamged locally. I'm not hungry or really cold, but I am bored. Doing a lot of reading. Got a nice light that recharges from the car.

    Anyways, see ya someday.

    My power/internet/landline just came back up last night from that storm, and local cellular coverage only a little before that. Good luck and stay sane, I hope the visiting utility repair crews (I heard there was a crew from as far away as Montana, and we had at least a dozen from Vermont around here) show up for you soon. :)

    It would appear as if the server just came back from short holiday.

    Power and net came back on at my place today. Sooner than expected, but then I live on a main road near a business district. Power still out at my mother's house. So I've been staying over there because she has a fireplace and so I keep the house a little warm with a fire.

    Wierd, I've gotten the snow yet did not lose power. Except for the occasional "WTF, Snow?! At this time of year!"

    The state got hit hardest away from the coast, north, west, and higher elevations. Opposite from you in all cases.

    I will be going for a while so I can work my site without getting distracted by petty discussions about things like the world economy possibly melting down and such.

    I dont know when I'll be back but hopefully not to long.

    Will be away until Caturday or Sunday. Someone kill Boundless for me, you'll get a cookie. Double cookies, a muffin and a bagful of scones for Abbadon's head. :evil:
