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.

Find The Perfect Linux-Compatible PC With Ubuntu's Hardware Database

Some PCs are more difficult to run Linux on than others — it’s all about the drivers. Some laptops are available with Linux pre-installed, but plenty aren’t — even though they may make great Linux PCs. The Ubuntu Certified Hardware database helps you find Linux-compatible PCs. Most computers can run Linux, but some are much easier than others. Certain hardware manufacturers (whether it’s Wi-Fi cards, video cards, or other buttons on your laptop) are more Linux-friendly than others, which means installing drivers and getting things to work will be less of a hassle.
