Los Angeles loses power

A large portion of Los Angeles lost power today as thousands of geeks converge on the city for Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference. Coincidence?

Suggested headlines:

  • Windows Vista takes so much it brings down an entire power grid.
  • Microsoft opens a portal to Hell, sending Los Angeles into darkness.
  • 12,000 geeks charge their laptops at once, cripple local power grid.

Totally joking, but a strange coincidence.

    The problem with #2:

    “# Microsoft opens a portal to Hell, sending Los Angeles into darkness.”

    is that LA is *already* a portal to hell!

    looks like media temple and dreamhost are all on the same power grid, which means almost every design-related site is down.
