Okay, so the datacenter that this server is located in, at The Planet, had a very large transformer short circuit, explode, and then catch fire.

(Where's Inferno when you need him?)

No humans or servers were hurt, but it took out a room of expensive electrical equipment and lots of wiring.

They've been working around the clock on it. Some 9000 internet servers were unreachable for a day and a half to two days. There's more about it at http://forums.theplanet.com/lofiversion/index.php/t90185.html if you're interested.

Now, where were we?

PS. they're talking about some scheduled downtime this coming weekend to switch from temporary hardware to permanent hardware, but hopefully that will be quick.

Considering that they lost the electric room with an explosion I'm surprised they got it all back up so fast.


Oh... I see... its like that is it? Damn.
I have to say I was never expecting that from you Smile
