So long, and thanks for all the fish.

227 days uptime. Gone. Down the drain. I managed to keep my two servers up and running for 227 days without a single second of downtime, and then we blew a circuit breaker at 00:15 Wednesday at the office which went undiscovered until after 06:00, by which time the battery backup units had long since drained. I guess now would be a good time to do upgrades like adding drive space or something… Time to add an automated generator at the office, eh? At least we’ve put off-site monitoring in place as of last night that will alert us via cell phone (SMS text messaging) should we lose network connectivity again. Yes, we should have done that a long time ago…

It snowed some this morning, but seems to have slacked off by the late afternoon. It better either come a foot of snow, or go ahead and turn into spring. I hate bleak winter weather unless it includes enough snow to sled in or make snow balls.

Update: I just got a free large Coca-Cola from Long John Silver’s. That may be the bright point of my week.
