Folks, I'd really like to apologize the the mess this afternoon.Virginia was the center of a 5.9 magnitude earthquake, and I;m afraid it was my fault.
I was beta-testing a new tag for HTML5 and it got a little out of hand. I had thought that the value for the quake tag was in decimal, but it turns out that I should have been using base 16. That was a lot stronger than I thought it would be.
I don't know about you, but I'm going to recommend that this tag not be adopted without better error checking.
P.S. Joking aside, I am fine and so are almost everyone in the area. It wasn't much of an earthquake.
P.P.S. I got the photo showing the earthquake damage from here.
P.P.S. Mike Cane yelled at me becuase he made a similar joke on Twitter.
