but last night I went to draw a smiley face on a piece of paper. You know, writing, with pen on paper.
I drew it sideways.
Just got a call from David Harden of alt.callahans, who used to post the ADMIN series. He's up in Kentucky in the path of the ice storm, and reports that he's safe but cold (power is out in his neighborhood) and stuck (large tree branch came down over his car; car appears to be essentially undamaged but can't be moved).
Will also post to the Callahans LJ group. If anyone is still actively on Usenet and willing to repost, that'd be a kindness.
