It seems that it was

It seems that it was just a power supply on my home box, I'm back online.

Oh, there was another missed photo opportunity today: I walked by Michael Dukakis on my way to lunch. It's not that big of a deal to walk by the guy that came in 2nd for the 1988 US Presidency, he works at UCLA as a lecturer, but I only see him once every 6 months or so, so it's still a minor thrill to see him.
