Back home again! What should have been a 4 hour trip home turned into a 5 hour one when a bad accident held up traffic for what turned out to be a 10 mile backup, then that 10 miles of packed cars affected the rest of the trip south on 78 from exit 33 to where it turns into 81, then on 81 for over 60 miles! Thats a 90+ mile section of major road that was severely impacted, dropping average speeds quite a bit. It should have taken us about 1.5 hrs, and it took over 2.5 for just that piece of road. argh! When we passed the accident site, it appeared that a semi had a LOT of damage to its front end, having plowed into another semi and knocked it through the guard rail and over the edge. Sheesh! (On rt 78 S, near exit 23 or so.)

Anyway, back home and glad to be here!

I'm almost done with Hacker's Challenge 2, and will be starting "Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box" next.

Watched about half of "Bedknobs and Broomsticks", then we turned it off as we were just too tired to continue. Perhaps tomorrow night we'll catch the rest of it.
