Things I have Learned Today

When fails you, the place to turn is twitter search.

Every single person on there asking if wikipedia is down is in my area. And presumably (from several of their reports) on verizon FIOS.

Meanwhile, everyone on a blog or message board asking about it just gets pointed to isitdownforeveryone. Note to world: there are possibilities intermediate between "everyone" and "just me".

$#%^% you, verizon. May all your camels come down with rickets and tie their legs in knots. May you all be diagnosed with embarrassing degenerative diseases the night before your company health plan goes under.

I would love to! - but I am catsitting, and don't want to abandon them completely for four days. They outnumber me 4-1, and would devour me when I returned.

Poo. ): Well, you've just about missed your chance for the scheduled LAF stuff - there's one next Wednesday, but I haven't requested off yet, and I don't think I will unless you decide you're interested? I'm on shift next week, wah. (Let me know tomorrow so I can request off, though.)

(He treats the Claude Moore events more for teaching than for research, which is all to the good, but pulling out the same six bags of artifacts every time so people have now washed the same potsherd over and over and over and over x eleventybillion ... yeah. There might be some new stuff to screen, though. I hope.)
