well, the power dropped. God bless generators! Unfortunately, the ups'es didn't like the power it gave, and both have refused to acknowledge the current as good and usable. The smaller one just plain died, and the bigger one just complains. So, fuck 'em. I've fooled the big one into letting it through anyway, heh. There's plenty of juice to run the essentials, and at this rate, i've got fuel for about 30 hours of power... which ought to be just enough time to let the damn thing get here in earnest... big slow fucker. it's ok, though. I've got pork chops and booze!
