Today has been unfashionably busy. A barrel load of problems has besieged our team at work. With good humor we have tackled them but the flood shows no sign of abating. I did arise early this morning to watch the new President take office. My current theory is that Obamamania has rendered our server farms giddy and positively inoperable. To top it all off Wellington suffered a power outage this morning.

I will continue monitoring the situation. I have taken remedial action of cutting a picture of President Obama out of the herald. He now occupies a section of my desk. I will make referential bows and offerings until problems cease.
