I noticed your apt HR Haggard quote there, Barth!

I should probably be available tonight, but depending on whether the family goes out for steak I might be a little late.

Well, if it's just you and me (no Brant, Tuna, OJ, Velker, Mirth (calling him out), Bawb (he'll be asleep in a street somewhere being Friday and all), Brant (doesn't own a gaming computer)), shall we continue Capt. Funn's adventure?

I'll probably be watching some of it

We shall see. It will be an experiment.

(Going to eat tonight with the folks, but I'm taking my own vehicle so odds are good I'll be back in time.)

Well, that went badly!

Jason dumped hard off line and I've not seen him since.

I trust you were not kidnapped by aliens and all is well.

Hopefully, not a bad storm. He dropped of IL2 one night like that, because of the weather.

{raspy inhalation} I.... LIVE....

..... AGAAAIINNNN!

{/ArmyOfDarknessref}

All of a sudden, AT&T decided to crash. It not only took out the internet but my landline phones, too! I don't know why -- we didn't have any storms around here (not even any phantom tornadoes like in California north of San Diego last night  ::) )  -- but by 10pm my time they still weren't back up and I went to bed.

(Edited to add: I suspect, although I can't be sure, that it had something to do with the fiber optic crew who have been feverishly meandering all over town and its outskirts for the past month and a half, working on service updates. They were definitely out yesterday, although I would have thought by 7pm they'd be home for the weekend.)

This morning, service has been restored. But that was suuuuuuuuper-annoying! I couldn't get back to Cyrano to explain what was happening either, naturally.

It could have been worse in a lot of ways, and I'm glad it wasn't, but still, argh.  :tickedoff: :buck2: Nightmarish flashbacks to my broadcast communication days when I'd be live on the radio or tv, and the transmitter would blop for some reason...

(Note to self, get Cyrano's cell phone before the next broadcast so, in a similar emergency, I can at least text him what's happening.)

Anyway, Cyrano, I'm so sorry. I hope you were able to find someone else on short notice to take over.  :-[

Of course! They're beautiful creatures. And also very intimidating.
