[Panel 1]
[Nils]
So it turns out they had a
"ten minute power outage".

[Ginny]
But…

[Nils]
Why yes, indeed, slatkin did log
the first power loss at 0446, and
madoff recovered at 0558. And that
is indeed longer than ten minutes.

[Panel 2]
[Ginny]
But ponzi and mccloundy
didn't lose power at all!

[Nils]
Funny you should
mention that.

Also, do you remember how
they wouldn't let us keep
our UPS because their power
was so rock-solid reliable?

[Panel 3]
[Ginny]
What did happen to that in the end?

[Nils]
You, I mean the company,
sold it to me as surplus.

It's been running my own machine
room since then. With complete
success, though I did have to feed
it a new battery a few years ago.

[Panel 4]
[Ginny]
So basically we have
to play politics now?

[Nils]
At the very least I should
be able to get them to pay
for parker's new discs.

[Ginny]
parker? Isn't that the
network bridge…? Oh. OH.

[Nils]
George C. Parker (1860-1936), "The
Man Who Sold the Brooklyn Bridge".
