The Big Blow

And no, I’m not talking about Monica Lewinski, though I may get to that today.

No, I’m talking about the high wind conditions we were supposed to get yesterday… they didn’t develop until this morning, and when they did they took out my internet connectivity.  70mph winds, again, like a couple weeks ago.

Given that when the net goes out around here the power goes out too, I took the whole LAN offline… several computers, a router, a few switches a few servers, etc., as a precaution. All I need is a power surge to wipe me out. THe wind is dying down, some, and the boradband just came back online a half hour ago, and so I’m just now getting my network going. It’ll take me a little to get things in balance again.
