  • Checking in

    I'm worried that I may have died on moved on to that toasty locale some of you have wished for me.

    The power is out in my building. I'm on battery and our router is apparently on a UPS. For about five mintes, there was an intercom message repeating, every 10 seconds, in a thick Indian accent

    “May I have attention please. May I have attention please. This is building security. We are having power problems in the buildings. Engineering is working on it. Please bear with us.” BEEEEEP

    This exact message is now being repeated by a stupid sounding female voice.

    So...are y'all there?

      Uh...anyone other than "undead"?

      Oh the messages have stopped, but the woman in the office next to mine is yelling on the phone about her divorce.

      Thank God for Sirius via internet.

            Has anyone disappeared, leaving only a pile of their clothes?

                      Guh that was a drag. 18 floors of stairs going down. Better than the window cleaners stuck on the side of the building though.

                      Anyway power's back up and the incessant message has stopped.

                          Hey...the power is out in Yellowknife too! Freaky. It's like we're all totally connected on this deep level...through like, transmission lines.

                          Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
                          Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

                          Treat others as you would have them treat you

                            Maybe the telecoms are on to us.

                            Or you have suicidal squirrels there too.

                              Thanks man! It was scary. Between the Indian man using broken english to deliver the same message, badly, every 10 seconds and the woman who replaced him delivering the exact same message in the same tone she must have used at the DMV to tell people that they'd just waited in the wrong line for the last 90 minutes and they need a green form....well I thought I was a goner.
