Happy September! I've been reading about the Carrington Event, which took place on this day back in 1859, and wondering what would happen if something similar happened in modern times. Would computers catch on fire like the telegraph machines did?

Anyway, on to more cheerful stuff. This is a holiday weekend here in the US, which means an embarrassment of festivals and conventions. It's time for DragonCon and Burning Man and many, many fireworks displays, including our local insanity on the river. Go out and be festive this weekend, wherever you are!
