So the power has gone out here (house-wide at the least, possibly neighborhood-wide) three times in the last twenty minutes. So I’m in Linux now because I didn’t care enough to make the system go to Windows–and more importantly, I’m not about to play video games with the power going out every couple minutes.
Anyway, random observation: In Linux, everything is so much crisper and clearer. The contrast ratios are better, and the edges on everything are so much cleaner, the blacks are darker, the whites stay whiter, and all my socks are static-free.
UPDATE: In total, the power went out 6 times in 30 minutes. It seems to have stopped for the moment, since it’s been 55 minutes since the last outage.
