Earthquake in the East Bay

Probably 3.9, probably Orinda.

400 meters east of Lake Temescal in Oakland,
and 12 kilometers down.

No damage or injury reports.
Nothing to see ... move along

And in other news, a backhone operating near
a major fiber run in the midwest saw and obeyed the
'FIBER' warnings on the ground, avoiding a catastrophic
link loss through Ohio; a security guard leaned
against the wall within a couple of feet of
the EPO switch in Telehouse NYC; an inexperienced
hacker released a new virus that turned out to
not work at all; no new Sendmail security hole
was announced; several new Windows security holes
were disclosed; and Jimmy Hoffa remains missing.
