Outage Update

Just want to give a quick update on the status of the outage at the Blue Tower. We are still without power or cell phone access, and the power company is not offering a time when things are expected to return, which is obviously not a good sign. It turns out there was a tornado in the area which explains the devastation. We're keeping our fingers crossed that things will return, and I'll try and let you know what's up as soon as I can. Sorry for the down time.

So I just finished watching Sean Connery's 1981 Outland. Haven't seen it in a very long time. Excellent flick if anyone is looking for some sci-fi to watch.

I couldn’t even boil water if I lost electricity (it would be too odd firing up the charcoal grill for morning coffee or tea). Now I’m thinking about getting something like a Coleman Classic 2-Burner Propane Stove and some extra tanks or the adapter for the big tank.
Yeah, I could swear I remember Blue getting a backup generator or something (maybe it was a UPS?). He's kind of in the country iirc, so I'm hoping they got a generator. Please

Stay safe Blue. I had lost power around 12:45pm yesterday and didn’t get it back until 2:45pm today. I also took a drive around to witness the downed trees everywhere. Crazy storm!

If I treat this as a catch all topic:
Just got my GMG key for Horizon zero dawn and it's letting me preload.
This time I'm putting the release on my NVME SSD, so hopefully when it unlocks it doesn't take a bunch of hours to decrypt like death stranding. If this doesn't make the decrypt faster, then I'll just be waiting to download until it actually unlocks on my next purchase since that seems like it would be faster.

Also, thinking about streaming my play on twitch just for fun, since I have a modern gaming PC after a number of years with an old one. So I'm looking up that stuff. I have a lifetime license for xsplit, so...

If this shouldn't be a catchall topic, feel free to delete.

Indeed, I bought one of these and wear it as often as I can when I go out into the world, which isn't often these days.

Do that make that in a tin foil hat and snuggie?

Hang in there. Lots of power out all along the east coast. Not that it makes it better, but misery loves company, right?
