Dead Phone

Other phones in the house still get dial tone, but not the one that's connected to our answering machine. So don't plan to leave a message for a bit. *sigh*

I still need to run one last test with another phone to make sure that it's not the phone jack that's suddenly died for some unknown reason. If it has, that's going to be a major pain. All in all, I'd rather buy a new phone / answering machine.

Update: And the answer is: it's the jack that's dead. The answering machine has been moved to a working jack and there's going to have to be some wiring investigations after Capricon. Ah, well.

Capricon Away!

With help from whl who hauled the boxes here in his van, catalana and I got the dealer table set up. (I pointed, she placed.) Then I headed off for Opening Ceremonies, where I joined daddy_guido for a short bit with Benelux and Professor Williams as performed by the SpaceTime Theater All Gimp Squad, as he seems to have bunged his right knee -- painfully, but with luck just a sprain. Then daisy_knotwise and cary_lee took over and we retreated to the audience, save for Guido's return to explain the wonders of the new water park.

After the dealer room closed, we grabbed dinner and have headed off in all directions. :)

Of course, we still have whl's coat...
