I swear, do outages time themselves for when I'm out of pocket? First, there was a power outage at home that was just long enough to blow through my UPS - which stopped the DVRs from recording things while I was away. When did that happen? On my way out of town.
Next? The blog server had some kind of problem while I was in the air (on the way back home) today - it's back online now. Sigh.
