that's funny you said that Irvine, cos when I told my dad LA had some blackouts, his first response was, "so they're trying to raise energy prices again, then?"

How can this be a bad thing?

Sorry --I couldn't resist.

Yes, ABEL...LAPD went on Testicle alert........

The city of Los Angeles has their own power network run through the Department of Water and Power...the remainder of us, have our own power circuit through So. CA Edison....while LA City was fucked, the rest of us watched and wrote on blue crack what was going on...

Who mentioned energy costs??? the local refineries (in LA) had to burn off their excess fuel that was apparently caught in a chasm between the cracker and the final step.,...that fuel could not be used and was burnt off.....when its burnt, it send black clouds (east) with the wind...now all of the poverty in that area was crying,,,,I can't breathe, ambulances, "breaking news", yada yada yada....all because some dumbshit cut the wrong line..........

Thank you very much. And Meddy Chreeesmas!

hmm...i wondered about this when i tried logging into myspace.com earlier this afternoon and couldn't....apparently it was affected by the power outages too.

so if any of y'all are having trouble with your myspace accounts, that explains it.

Hey folks, sorry about things being down. There was a power outage in LA which caused the problem. Don't worry, you didn't lose any of your info. Might take a bit for us to fully restore things but all is good.

* Image upload is down
* Status on messages is missing
* Music Search is not workin
* Some images aren't showing up
* Some profiles are temporarily shut off
* Some logins may be slow

i'd hate to be him right now lol.
Actually, he should be fine. Even though it was clear he made a mistake - the union has stepped in to blame DWP.

Quote:
An official with the union that represents DWP workers charged that, regardless of whether lines were cut, the real cause of the outage was the DWP's decision to test the new relay system in the middle of the day, rather than at night when power loads would have been lower — but costs would have been higher because of overtime.
