I've been offline for over a week, and it's not because of anything scheduled on my part. Mother Nature decided to smack Buffalo with one of the biggest storms ever and it knocked out power all over our region. At my house, we ended up being without power for 8 days. We're talking Frontier House territory here, with no planning. Plus I was off on vacation, so I was at the mercy of my home power and internet connection, both of which were not available.
Anyway, things are starting to return to normal over a week later.
