Well, the server just withstood a 5.6 earthquake about 45 minutes ago without a hitch, and my cel providers apparently did not...good news! smile.gif (For the server; not pleased about the phone outage.)

I heard it was down in Chino Hills. I called a friend there and he said lots of shaking, not much damage that he can see anywhere.

I guess it's apropos to ask here, then -- everyone out on the Left Coast doing OK, now? I saw the news and while there isn't anything along the lines of "big damage" reports in what I'm seeing, I figured I'd make sure no one on the Forum is in a bad way.

All's fine here. I think anything under magnitude 6, even a little higher, is in the realm of scary but not damaging.

Yeah, all's well here in downtown LA, but it really was a hell of a shake. I did the doorway thing in my bathroom (fortunately (?) I'm home today due to lack of hot water in my 5th floor apartment!), and watched stuff in my closet swaying for a full minute, at least. Lots of building creaking as well.

Saw a lot of these in Alaska, but this was definitely the second-strongest shake I've ever felt.

EDIT: Local news here is endlessly repeating the possibility that this was a foreshock (5% chance)... rolleyes.gif Okay, I might need a place to stay for the next few months. Who's got the beer?

Hmmm, only until June '09.
Time to start thinking about extra donations for the expected increase in discussions about MSL's pending launch and cruise.

The goal - enough to pay for extra server space/speed/features(?) to get us through to July 14 2015 - New Horizons closest approach to Pluto. Then we can worry about the Kuiper Belt. smile.gif

With MSL being delayed, we'll need to find another "reason" to start donating to UMSF.com again mellow.gif
Just warn the UMSF community on time...
