Also had a power outage this morning...well, more of a voltage drop. The lights started flickering while I was in the shower...which was rather annoying, because I had to jump out and go unplug deneb to prevent its power supply from shitting itself. And PG&E has changed their electrical outage report hotline thing, so I now have to give them an account number whenever I call. Unfortunately, it just so happens that my landlady is the one who pays the electric bill... so I don't even have the account number. Meh.
It took me all of 15 minutes once I thought of it, but I now have a dual-headed 1600x1200 desktop, thanks to deneb's 19-inch monitor, and alnath's video card.
nVidia makes some pretty decent hardware. :)
