Aftermath of Irene [Aug. 29th, 2011|12:08 pm]

[This Hyena Feels... |pissed offpissed off]

So early this morning, I lost power. An exploded transformer, or transformer fire. There was a fire truck down the road and everything, so I hear (was woken up by my brother at Retard O'Clock in the morning and realized hey, no power... well, shit).

So I call the power company. We're a tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny pocket of lost power --- only three of the buildings on our corner lost it and everyone else didn't. Thus, we're a LOW LOW LOW LOW LOW LOL LOW FUCK YOU YOU POOR INFERIOR PEOPLE priority.

Estimated time for repairs? 2 fucking weeks or more.

Not happy. Not happy at all. Not. Happy.

Aori, sit tight please on my scriptwork, but when I return I want you to make time to blow through at least three of the last classes (see, this is why I wanted you to make that one part of the CT Script that didn't rely on all this). This is kinda time sensitive stuff we are doing because I wanted to get the hard shit done before you got slaughtered in your classes with college work and the like. In the meantime, maybe get the catboy to go over your currently-done work.

To those of you waiting for the next installment of Goblins: Civilization: Sit tight. I'll be back. The very moment I am, expect a lot of Zhishnak-flavored fun, among other things. I kind of led you into the impending war with what Ol' Mags pulled off, it'll be your job to win the damn thing.

So yeah, until then, I guess.

Winds Be At Your Back, and May The World Still Be Here Tomorrow...

oh damn. I wonder if the power company is going to reimburse you for all the food you are gonna lose in the fridge? But we both know the answer. Crap...

My stuff is all microwavables. The only thing I am losing is a couple of 8 packs of Mountain Dew. So I dodged that bullet. Failing that, I'll just order a pizza using the working (for once) pay phones by the local Ghetto Mart.

But still. Two weeks. For a SIMPLE THING. They can afford to send out a tech for it, but no. I'm in a poor area where the "people don't matter", is the way the people on the other end of the line came across to me as. "tiny pocket" my tail...

I have people waiting to continue a game thread (the link's in the post, go read it!)... meh, it can wait. They're warned I'm gone. I'll be ok.

I'm a veteran when it comes to hurricanes and if you plan ahead, you can save your food. We only lost a few small items in our kitchen refrigerator (mostly stuff we didn't care about anyway). Our bulk freezer was prepped for the storm and endured just over 2 days without power with no losses.

All right, got it. I'm sorry I wasn't really available for coding this weekend (I feel kind of bad that I ended up getting caught up in my friends and their party games >>;), but yeah, whenever you get back on I'm ready to start blowing through this stuff. In the meantime I'll go and fill in holes in implementations and yeah, definitely get the catboy to look over stuff. Good luck with the power company. :/

It's ok. If you want to do things with your friends, don't let me monopolize your time (and believe me, I will try to :P )

You know what I like, and if you don't, do what you think is right, write it down and I'll go over it with you when I get back online.

Maybe get said catboy to combine the old "this is how you can get stacking bad status" script he wrote for me (if he still has it) to combine with your blasphemy-out-of-the-pits-of-coding you're doing for me.

At least I have a notepad and pen to write out a Call Script list and the hazards.

Wait a minute, don't you live near Albany? I didn't think anything in NY got it except the city and immediate surrounding areas. Maybe I didn't pay enough attention after I realized the Philly area was going to come through fine.

I posted to a local community and word is that some of the other areas close to Albany got slammed; we got off lucky (as often seems to happen around here). Now they're saying September 1, but I don't buy that for an instant.

With the widespread outages caused by the storm, I'm not at all surprised to hear that. We were out for just over 2 days (got power back this afternoon) and some of our neighbors are expected to be out until as late as Friday.

The longest I've gone without was 9 days after Hurricane Fran back in '96.
