Well, it was still tuesday evening here in Californ'.
But the outage lasted long enough to short-circuit any attempt at Recall Election post-mortems, therefore I suspet it was an intentional act of sabotage by one of three people:
(1) Arnold Schwarzenegger
(2) Grey Davis
(3) Matt Haughey.

i hate the way you always politicize everything, wendell. :)

ughhhhhh, wendell, did you have to bring up the California election? Everytime I think we have perhaps reached a nadir, we limbo a little lower.

I was amused by this comment by someone named Ralph at the Daily Kos:

Hey q! I have my alarm clock wired to trigger a special beep when mefi goes back online after having been down for awhile. Doesn't everyone?

I hate the way you always use those cute little smilies, quonsar...

Austrian clock, Miguel, are you calling us Californians cuckoos??? I'd already noted in the obligatory NewsFilter thread that CA has fallen below FL in the rankings of Smartest/Dumbest States.

And madamjjj, may I take this opportunity to chant:
"Nadir! Nadir! Nadir!"

Downtime on the T1, which all parties blamed on Verizon. Still unclear what happened; I went to bed at 11 PM Boston time, and asked my ISP not to call me unless a truck would be arriving at my house to do maintenance on the T1. It appears that didn't happen, because I woke up this morning and the line was up and running.

More info as I get it...

"Nadir! Nadir! Nadir!"

OK, I know what that word means but I'm wondering if you actualy meant either:

Nader! Nader! Nader!

or

Neener! Neener! Neener!

So very, very confused...

I recall the Good Ole Days (GOD) when some people would sign their name at the bottom so it would appear right above their name. I always found that annoying and seeing how lunch isn't agreeing with me, I pass on the annoyance.

Such a great life, evidently, that you can spare the time to slum it down here and tell us plebs about it. I salute you and your shiny sparkly life! When I am miserable I shall think of you drenched in champagne and feel better.

I was having such bad MeFi withdrawls that only a rowdy game of D&D and a couple of 40's could calm me. ;)

I'm confused too.

Who's going down on whom? Jesus, if I knew that there was some majestic MeFi orgy going on, I'd clear my Tuesday nights.
