CON.TXT & Southwest Airlines -- oh noes

Oh noes! Southwest Airlines, the one on which I'm ticketed to travel Thursday for CON.TXT, experienced a major computer failure throughout their computer system nationwide and has canceled over 1,850 flights -- including the ones out of the airport from which I fly -- since the problem started on Wednesday. Southwest Airlines is encouraging those who have Southwest tickets up to this coming Tuesday to reschedule. This could still affect me on Thursday depending on how much of a jam-up is created by the rescheduling.

I know fen who were affected by this while trying to get home from SoMeCon in Florida this week. My sympathies to all who are now stuck over-long in airports and missing connections.
