Looks like everyone lost power some time this afternoon. Here in Detroit it wasn't particularly tropical this morning, but I got back to my hotel at about 8 and it was snowing ! <brrrr>!

BRR. Yeah, when I checked in with PECO, the outage covered quite a few homes.

power came back. tis why i said yay earlier
Wanna know the worst part? I had forgot to save... I had written 90% of a bubble sort using the IAS machine instruction set.... and the power poofed. I was able to recover with minimal loss however. yay for automatic backups

Oh good! There've been warnings about snow and storm moving east from here to Philly in the afternoon tomorrow. We shall see, I suppose.
Auto-backups are the best invention since sliced bread - I definitely agree! I always set them to the minimal interval available.
But I was saved by the save.

And you finished your sort routine, I assume. Well done!

I really hate assembly and machine code! To the extent that I was tasked with writing memory management modules for a cell tower OS in Germany, and used Fortran throughout! The reason? Fortran is easy to write in and the optimising compiler will let you emit assembly instead of machine code, so I just presented that to the boss. He seemed happy, as it all worked.

My sympathies are totally with you. Will you be up on the 15th to Abyss, BTW ?
