Hi, my name is Damian, and I'm tech gadget addict! Although I always had some interest in technology, it wasn't until I got my EX470 and more importantly found, that my interest became an addiction. My goal, aside from world domination and to see the Mets/Broncos win another championship, is to set up the perfect digital home where all my media is available at the click of a button. When I am not writing for you can find me over at my blog at or follow me on twitter

We are out east on Long Island and actually fared well. Lost a couple sections of our fence, but otherwise we never lost power. We just haven’t had phone/internet/tv since Monday night. It is just amazing the amount of destruction that was caused, especially where one area got by barely untouched yet a mile down the road it was real bad.

Hope all is well with you and your family.

Yep, that is PURE GEEK!

Glad all OK your way. Up in our area of Dutchess County we were also very lucky — a couple small branches and a couple days with no cable (internet, phone, TV). Folks just a few miles South and West of us got nailed — but overall not as bad as Long Island or NJ.

Our hearts go out to all who were not so lucky…

Surely you had a lowly Cat5 cable you could have used instead? ;) Glad you and your home weathered the storm fairly well. Besides, that fence of yours has a death wish, always falling over.
