An unexpected and unexplained blackout occurred for about 22 minutes, during which time they lost total contact with the probe.
And we are quite sorry about that. We needed to get some of our stuff out of the way, first. Basically Christmas presents we hid from the kids. Okay, anyway, we got them all moved out, so Akatsuki can have that spot and get back to work.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
