Too Cold For USB

Negative temperatures outside my window are apparently not conducive to electrical continuity in the 30′ of USB extension cables I have jerry-rigged around my living room. Nate couldn’t get anything to print tonight, and after cycling the printer power and printer’s USB connection, I tried the next link in the chain, underneath the heater/AC unit with its vent to the bitter cold. Seemed to be firm when I unplugged it, but popping it back in magically started the printer again.

Coincidence? I fear not…
