Why Didn't Anyone Think Of That Before? It's So Stupid, It's Positively Brilliant!

by Rainier on Feb. 23, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

First of all I need to apologize for the late and spotty coverage yesterday morning. We were starting to feel like we were living in some third world country. First, our Internet connection kept cutting out, and then shortly thereafter, the electricity went out for a few hours. It's amazing how little there is to do without power — no TV, no Internet, no radio, no lights, no phone, and even the laptop was of no use since there were no functional routers in the area, for obvious reasons. Boring!

Another negative side effect of the matter was that when the power went down, it tweaked my iPod again, for some reason! I'm going to try one more time to get it working, but if it dies on me again, I'm kicking it to the curb.
