Verio's datacenter in Boca Raton went down because the fuel pump from a large fuel tank to a small fuel tank failed, so when the fuel ran out in the small tank the generators shut down.

I'm guessing at this point FLP got the power back up and running. I was up late last night and as of about midnight the site was not up. I can't wait to find out what they are going to do to prevent this fro happening again.

Fortunately for our advertisers they just got an extra day of advertising tacked on! :)

I was twitching yesterday from the missing daily dose of RMCB5.  I thought the IT deptartment had blocked the site on the proxy.  I built a SSL tunnel to one of my linux systems at home with S-CRT and pointed my browser connection threw the tunnel, and thats when I knew it was truely down and I was sad :(

I thought our local servers were flaking out as always, but everything else worked fine so I knew it was this server.

A day without RMCB5 is a day where I have one less thing to fight boredom with. That is good and bad...

I'm wondering if we need to start a hurricane relief fund for the Verio's Datacenter.
