It is really frigging hot outside. Today is day three of probably five straight days with midday temperatures over 100 degrees. During the height of yesterday's burn, there was apparently a brownout, or partial blackout, kicked off by local air conditioners running as hard as they can go. My linux computer, which had an uptime of about 450 days, was taken down in the first power outage that there has been at my apartment since I moved in, three years ago.
When I got home, it wouldn't turn on. I'm not happy about this.
