Welcome to Coast to Coast listeners! If you found me though C2C, you probably want to read this post about Pluto.
In the meantime, my laptop AC adapter is busted, and I'm running low on battery power. This happens while I'm away from home, at a convention I want to blog about, and at the same time HUGE news comes about Pluto. So I'm basically screwed here. I tried buying a universal adapter, but it had no plugs that fit! So I doubt I'll be able to blog much until I get back home. I hope to find another computer here or even borrow an adapter long enough to get a charge, but you may not hear from me for a few days.
I hate computers.
