I had an unexpectedly delightful experience: I was at my local pub and the
power went out.  It resulted in a wonderful sense of community in
''adversity" (we had emergency lighting and the bar maid brought out
numerous candles) and made this one of the best Thanksgiving experiences
I've ever had.  And all my computer work (document editing) was local.  All
good!  -- Ian
