Out of the Blue

Happy solstice, as today is the first day of winter in the northern hemisphere, and the beginning of summer (such as it is) in the southern. This converged with the lunar eclipse in the wee hours of this morning, but not to worry if you missed it, since you'll be able to catch another eclipse/solstice combination in 2094. Maybe this double event (not to mention the Ursids meteor shower) is to blame for my flaky computer, as I found my machine in the middle of a continuous stream of reboots this morning, and it even spontaneously shut down from safe mode. It seems to be fine now, but it only worked after a 15 minute time out.
