Middle of the night outage - 11/15/08 12:12 PM

Morning all,

Just wanted to give you a heads up about the outage we had in the middle of the night. It was an outage at our ISP.

As you may have heard, Los Angeles has got big winds right now, and that means fires. The Sylmar fire burning right now is affecting power throughout the LA area.

Last night, the ISP lost power that when restored tripped a breaker that had to be flipped manually (e.g., someone driving out to that relay office in the middle of the night).

We are actually looking about hosting our sites differently, and if we find something that makes sense for us, we may move the web sites. We'll see. We'll let you know if we do that.

Thanks!

Neil

Good luck to y'all out there. My LIttle Sister is in SF right now, and her friends are supposed to get into LA today, via charter bus, then take AmTrack up to SF. Good luck to them, too.

I am relieved that when I first saw your topic, it was just my dyslexia, and that you did not have a middle of the night outrage. Wait. It probably felt that way, huh?

Truly, fingers crossed down here for all y'all out there.
