Did you feel it Aaron? Skipped right passed me. I was coming in from outside and noticed that my window blinds were moving back and forth--as if a window was open. I next saw a tweet from a friend--then another tweet from KABC radio confirming the quake.

Oh yeah, I felt it. Came in slow waves for a long while. Pretty strong ,even way out here. Kind that makes you all nauseous and dizzy feeling.

They were having a few 3 and 4's in that spot for a week or so before. A 4 yesterday, shows on the map there.

That's crazy! This is the first one in a very long time that I actually didn't feel.

But on a side note, I have a sister and niece in Chula Vista (like about 5 miles from the border) and they said the shaking was very strong. All of them are O.K., though.

I live in Chula Vista also and it was the strongest one I've ever felt here. I've lived here on and off since 1977 and it was a pretty scary 30 seconds or more

BTW, I'd like to report that Windows 7 is Earthquake proof

Earthquake in Northern California
I was awoken by a significant earthquake at 3:20AM this morning. It was a pretty good rolling, then a few strong jolts, maybe 15 seconds. No damage here, just an exciting ride. But based on the strength, and not knowing where the epicenter was, it occurred to me it could be a bad quake somewhere if...

Oklahoma Earthquake?
I was quite surprised that ~20 minutes ago, that my apartment started shaking for a few moments. While some Californians would find this too common to comment, it is very rare here. I have NEVER felt an earthquake here before, even though Googling, I found that there are a few minor earthquakes...

What is a thread? (On a CPU)
I've always wanted to know exactly what a thread is. How does a thread differ from a core? Answer in anyway you want, even if it's a link to a webpage that explains it :)
