Spectrum is down?  Is this the apocalypse?

Can you get to the shows any other way?

My cable Spectrum is working.

There was an explosion in a Google datacenter...not sure if related.

DownDetector reports rather widespread outages.
 
2022-08-09 9:00:24 PM  
I even called them and tech support said, "We have too many calls and can't take any more. Try again later."
 
2022-08-09 9:01:20 PM  
Tried via the iPad app and that has an error, too

Yikes.  Not Google.  How will she give me directions and whisper sweet nothings into my ear now?

I expected as much.

I hope the Google Assistant is OK.  I asked Bing what she looks like and got this:

That explains it.  I wonder if the rest of her is build backwards.

It has finally started to cool down. We've had bad heat and humidity for day now.

Glad to hear you're getting some relief. I've lost 10 pounds working outside the past week in sweat, getting ready for the re-roof starting next week, and doing the bidding of the home-owners assoc.  You're lucky not to have an HOA.

I've only ever heard bad things about HOAs.

I am periodically checking the Spectrum site.

On top of the re-roof/solar, the kitchen is also getting into the repair cycle, for the dishwasher leak.  Walls, even outside walls have been damaged, cabinets are destroyed.  It is pretty rare to have a chance to play guitar any more.  Got to do some a couple nights ago, playing classical, folk, and Megadeth, on acoustic.  I really want to learn this song:

They did approve the solar in only a few days, and the re-roof in a day, but it took a lot of calls.  Then they come and say, oh, your yard is a wreck and you need to fix it now.  I thought it looked OK, but they must have a different, jaundiced, eye.

Ain't she pretty, and wiggly?
 
2022-08-09 9:58:00 PM  
She also has an immense mouth.
 
2022-08-09 9:59:02 PM  
Try to French kiss that mouth, you might reach Belgium and Spain too.

I've stopped posting music from the 80's :)  for a few minutes.

BTW, there is a rocket launch in 5 minutes, going to look.
 
2022-08-09 10:12:58 PM  
T- 2 minutes and counting.
 
2022-08-09 10:13:32 PM  
One million pounds of propellant.  1.6 million pounds of thrust.

Yep.  It went north.  Longish tail. The sky was sort of moist though, but could follow it for a good few minutes.

I was able to log into Spectrum! It's...playing!

Did you ever notice how SpaceX sounds like Space Sex?

The blob in the upper right was the rocket.  Believe me.

Not before now.

So cool that you can walk outside and see rocket launches.

It is a definite attraction.

SpaceX/ SpaceSex was probably one of Elon's jokes.
 
2022-08-09 10:35:03 PM  
SpaceX also has the BFR, or Big F-ing Rocket, or Big Falcon Rocket.
