USA congress-callers, you have other sites

If 5 Calls isn't working for you today, here's a similar site: The 65. It doesn't conveniently show you your senator/rep's phone # on the same screen as info about the issue… but you can find those phone numbers; I believe in you. Heck, they might be in your phone's call history by now.

I bet 5 Calls will be working again soon, though. Computer nerds looking at the problem think "oh, that's work-aroundable".

CA congress-callers, you have 2 senators

I love reading tweets&posts from my friends calling their congress critters. The 5 Calls web site is pretty excellent for keeping track of issues to call about; and I see a lot of folks are using it. Hmm, it only seems to know about one CA senator, tho: Feinstein. I see a lot of CA folks frustrated because Senator Feinstein's lines are busy and her voice mailboxes are full.

Californians, you have another another Senator: Kamala Harris. She has contact info at her website, but I'll copy-paste it here: Washington DC office 1-(202) 224-3553, Sacramento office (916) 448 - 2787. When I called WDC just now, I couldn't speak to a human… but at least the voicemail wasn't full, hurrah. I could leave a message. Maybe you can, too.

That "Barbarian" missing text was a false alarm, sorry. It's actually an old text, months old. When I switched to this new messaging app, I imported my old messages into the new app. A while later, t...

Update: This was a false alarm. This was an old text buried in my inbox; not a new text accidentally deleted. Whoopsie. If you recently sent me a text that starts "Barbarians at the gate", I lost t...
