A bad thunderstorm is rolling in. Anyone wanna bet me how long before the lights go out?

Yep, there go the tornado warning sirens...

Update: Still here, still have lights for now. Another smaller storm not too far away headed this way tho.

Update 2: Holy cow, there's a big line of storms coming right for me. Go look at the weather channel. I'm in Clarksville, TN. It's a line of storms longer than the height of the state. They say it'll be a rough night and on and off tomorrow. I'm fairly sure the site will be going down.

Natty Tornadoes

Same here. I'm in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, and we've been under a flood warning for what seems like the last 2 weeks, plus thunderstorms and the sirens going off. Just moved here 2 1/2 years ago from Miami, and the sirens still set my nerves on edge.

Thanks for keeping at it, Susan. Your dedication is appreciated, and tomorrow with the release of Natty should be interesting-there may be INTERNATIONAL tornado sirens!

Re: storming

Friends of mine in Indiana have been dealing with storms as well, but it sounds like you are getting hit far worse than them, with power outages and everything. Hopefully it will all pass soon, and I hope you'll get off scot-free as far as any potential damage is concerned.

Open Source's 2014: MS 'cancer' embrace, NASDAQ listings, and a quiet dog

Ho hum. Another year, another slew of open source announcements that prove the once-maligned development methodology is now so mainstream as to be tedious. Running most of the world’s most powerful supercomputers? Been there, done that. Giving retailers the ability to deliver highly customized paper coupons to consumers based on warehouse inventory nearby? So 2013! And yet in 2014 we had a few events in open source that managed to surprise us, and suggest an even brighter future. Read more
