I got a second message last night at 7 PM. Therein lies a bit of a story. But first, a little expansion on the original. The messages are coming in via SMS, although they show as if it were an email address rather than a number. As for this:

the thing following "at:" is apparently what you "named" your Blink. "Named" in quotes, because maybe you didn't give it a name and they stuck something on it for you.
Yesterday morning, the Blink was "on the blink", with usual network difficulties. Since I'm trying to find a better way to unwedge it than pulling the plug, I did "everything else", which included resetting the router, and running "test the network" on the Blink. In this case, it claimed it could get an address, but not connect. It also suspiciously did not see any of the neighbor's networks. I suspect a lot of what it was telling me was cached and not real. I decided to just leave it until the evening and see if (1) it would figure it all out (maybe some timeout would expire) and (2) if BlinkNetwork would get all testy about not hearing from the box.
And the results were, it rebooted itself around 7 PM. Then it went online. Then it told me the charging was done. It doesn't say when. But the uptime on the box when I got home pinned it at 7 PM. So really, the message meant, "OK, I rebooted"
