Mom and Dad stopped by last night and i helped them a little with some iPhone questions, giving my Mom a headset to use to talk on her phone and showing Dad how to deal with call waiting. I note both Google voice's web interface and the iPhone use a very stylized representation of a cassette tape for voice mail: i actually had a cassette tape at hand to show what the symbol was supposed to mean. (And, in obsolete tech as symbols, i realize it's been a while since seeing a floppy disk used to represent saving a file.)
Otherwise, i have a lousy cough that's been a drag since the storm. Meh. Steroids to the rescue.
We're all well.
