      Word is they're not capable of handling the current demand (it
      is the second day of what feels like a serious heat wave, with

      may be shut off on a rotating basis, a block or a few blocks at
      a time, if the load cannot be reduced.

        Okay, just received word that they're doing it: rolling black-
        outs for 90 minutes at a time, around the Bay Area (not just in
        the city.)

        It'll be interesting to see what kind of outages this causes;
        for one thing, Sean's power may go out.

        If power goes out in the NOC and there's nobody around to
        monitor it....
