    Jeez, I wonder what could cause an outage like that. I mean over alol that area. :confused: Oh well. At least it's not any bigger.

    they're thinking an overload in the niagra mohawk grid did it. what caused that overload is up in the air tho. there's speculation it was maybe possibly perhaps msblast... imagine if it was. that sound you hear is the author's jail sentance going up a few thousand years, if they catch them.

    The nuclear power plants we use now provide power to multi- state regions.

    ok, so they've ruled out msblast. if this had to happen somehow or another, it would have been kind of funny to have that be the reason, i think. (im not saying its funny it happened, cause its not. so dont get me wrong here @_@)

    I live in UTAH and I am feeling the effects.

    Last night at work we had a complete system failure. I found out that our headquarters, on the East Coast, had their system crash. The country was without Pizza Hut pizza for a good number of hours.
