I have already established that the phrase “new Le Vent du Nord album” is at the top of the list of Things That Give Me Joy. But right behind that is the phrase “new De Temps Antan album”. And I am delighted, O Internets, to report that I have that very…

Our power is back! Yay! Our Internet is not, not yet. Boo. :( Dara says Door came up funny, she is troubleshooting to make sure the server is okay. I'll sing out when our connection is back up.

THIS JUST IN: fall has arrived in Kenmore, and by 'fall' I mean 'POWER OUTAGES'. Over 2,600 customers out in Kenmore right now, including my house. Puget Sound Energy alert mail says ETA on repair is 2:30pm this afternoon. All our hosted net resources are unavailable until then. Apologies. :( Will update if that ETA changes!

Part 4 of my Quebec trip report, covering Sunday and Monday at Camp Violon Trad: the camp welcome and the first day of classes, with a bonus glimpse of what it'll be like to see Andre Brunet performing as part of Le Vent du Nord. I have a hard time…

Whoops looks like Murkworks.net connectivity is out. This time it's just Comcast falling over as opposed to a power outage, but nonetheless, we are down. Comcast's website says expected resolution by 3:17pm (which is a strangely specific time, but hey, it's what they're reporting)!
