People are still using that?

This is a bit of old news but I just saw it and thought it was amusing. It seems that Con Edison has finally discontinued distribution of DC power! I didn't even know they were still using DC current. Who'd'a thunk it?

But that's not even the kicker! It seems that the Mid-Manhattan Library as well as a few thousand other users had to be transitioned over to AC power over the last few years. Their method? Install an AC-to-DC converter!

Though come to think of it, I'll bet the lights in that place are great for reading...
