I'm counting down til I have to leave for work. Contemplating whether or not my back hurts enough to merit some kind of drug intervention. So far...nope.

I phoned Hydro Quebec, but the volume of calls is so high that they aren't giving the messages about when power is expected back.

Hope you get your power back soon.

Good job re hotspot! I've been able to use my phone as a hotspot for iPad, but need to figure out how to use it for the PC. Can't get it to show up. A friend was able to use her phone hotspot for all her computers, and apparently saves a lot of money that way, but she's out of the country right now, so I can't ask her what she did.

I had to tell the phone to allow all devices. Then it worked. It also picked up the MAC number from the PC and then I gave it my PC's name.

The power is out because of a lightening strike in Churchill Falls. There is a major transmission line there. Over 400,000 people are without power.

Oh shoot, I knew that. Well, glad you have an alternative.

What a pain. Thankfully, it's not winter.
