Is it gin o’clock yet?

Oh, man, I’ve had a booger of a day. Power was down at work, which I didn’t realize until I got there.

When the power is out, the fire alarm keens like a wounded animal. The intruder alarm makes a series of two high, two low beeps until you plug in a certain code, which shuts it up. For half an hour.

Our phone now goes over ethernet, so no incoming calls on the landline. I managed to rig my cellphone as a wifi hotspot and get some mail in and out on the laptop, but none of the apps I use to control things would work. The solar panels realized they were offline and began to whimper softly.

Couldn’t buy a cup of coffee and couldn’t have paid for it if I did.

I don’t think our lords and masters have thought through this “make everything electric” business. Especially while they’re blowing up our sources of electricity.

No electricity, no digital money, no universal ID, no social credit score. We are ruled by idiots. Have a good weekend!
