So here’s an odd thing:
All the lights, air-conditioning, elevator, alarm systems just wen off-line in my office building here. However, my computers & monitors all still have power. My speakers, which were plugged into a different jack, don’t have power (although, tempermental as they are, they could have just blown again).
It’s rather curious. I’m not sure whether or not to shut down, just to be safe, or keep working. Being on a laptop, it’s not the end of the world if there’s a power outage, but it is sure going to get hot here soon. Also of note, it appears that wherever my router is plugged into is likewise unaffected by this semi-outage (is this what they call a brown-out?)
