Chinese New Year, Quiet Tablet Time

There’s been no new tablet introductions of any significance (meaning: of interest to me) during my blog interruption.

IRL Complications

A Sticky until the situation changes. Scroll down one for any new posts.

Stuff In Real Life with no end yet in sight is keeping me offline more than usual.

For the past week, I’ve been offline during the evenings.

I was offline all this weekend.

There might be a ramp up that will keep me offline totally for either a few days or up to two weeks.

I’ll try to give a timeframe if I can get on the Net from elsewhere, but don’t be surprised if the blog doesn’t get updated beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, February 10, 2015).

February 10, 2015 update: Blog updating could stop any time. I was able to quickly check China today.

February 14, 2015 update: I had a small bit of time to approve Comments. There is no time for any new posts. I’m not yet at the point where I have to announce an official hiatus for this joint. But it could happen.

February 17, 2015 update: Shit threatens to get even worse. Standby for even fewer updates.

February 18, 2015 update: Sporadic updates that can end at any time.

February 24, 2015 update: Dragged the home notebook — which weighs like a hundred fucking pounds — to a remote location. WiFi is totally unreliable. But I did get to read about the new Pebble Time and do a quick post about it. No other updates yet possible.

February 25, 2015 update: Despite any new updates, don’t expect the old volume of coverage. And don’t expect regularity. And expect it all to cease at any time.

NYC Blizzard January 2015: Update Five, Final

Weather Underground should have stuck with this:

WU433PMBlizzard

Between five to eight is what I got.

NYC is still under weather lockdown as of 7:42AM, but I’ve seen “civilian” drivers out.

Once again, they hyped the hell out of a storm that turned out not to be as bad as they said. This is why they weren’t believed when it came to Superstorm Sandy.

NYC Blizzard January 2015: Update Four

Most the day, Weather Underground insisted on this snowfall amount:

WU433PMBlizzard

Shortly before post time here, it was changed to this:

WU941PMBlizzard

The Weather Channel earlier today showed a model called RPM that also predicted somewhere between three to eight inches. But they were believing the EUR model, showing feet.

I do this post to remind me. Let’s see what I wake up to in the morning.

Someone will have some ’splainin to do.

NYC Blizzard January 2015: Update Three

Drudge2015Blizzard012615b

Predictions have varied widely today. One model had just three to five inches. Another up to three feet. Everyone seems to be settling for over a foot to maybe two feet — with three feet as a backup.

I’ve had a little over two inches today, not really blizzard-like. But the blizzard doesn’t begin for two to three hours yet.

What will I wake up to see tomorrow?

Meanwhile, by 11PM, all of New York City will basically be on a weather lockdown.

The worst will happen at night.

Why does it usually happen overnight? Why the hell can’t it get it over with while there’s still light outside so we can all deal with it?

Already had a bit of snow that’s coated everything. Just a teasing.
