I woke up today around 10:30am (pretty early for a Sunday) with a strange feeling. It felt chilly and I realized something was wrong. Suddenly, everything just turned off. A power outage...The UPS in my closet started beeping. After a few minutes, I resolved to get out of bed and check on it. The server was not on. I thought that the UPS was broken as I never really tested it in a power outage. I angrily went back to bed and lay there for a while thinking..As my brain began working after my long slumber, I began thinking that perhaps I misconfigured my UPS. I went to go check on it and realized I had plugged my server into the surge protected outlet instead of the backed up outlet. BAH! I fixed this and was able to boot up my server normally. Power went back up at 12:10pm. Right now I am pretty angry at PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) for being so incompetent...

I finally released GtkHx 0.8. I had to do it as the Debian package had an important bug in it and my Debian Application Manager said I had to fix this, as a final "test" I suppose, before he would recommend me to the NM committee. There are a few bugs in it, but it is pretty functional.
