About Me

My photo

Tech journalist since the dark ages. Windows Secrets, LangaList newsletter, Windows Magazine (NetGuide, Home PC), Byte, Popular Computing, yadda yadda yadda. Google me, if it matters.

This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

power's been out for 24 hours now

Thank you, Irene.

Still, it could have been so much worse. Kudos to the weathergeeks for alerting everyone so well and providing such fantastic real-time information.

And a big bird flip to the TV weather-performers for over-hyping the storm.  Jeebus.

I'm sort of back online via battery power, and using my cellphone as a wifi hotspot. It feels like a 1990's ISDN connection.

But it's way better than nothing.

Yours in temporary electronic limbo,
