From our host:
There was a catastrophic failure in the power systems of the million-square-foot Central City facility today (our server) is located in. This catastrophic failure affected all of our power systems including all UPS and generator backups. This is the first power incident we have had since moving to this facility in 2006. We apologize sincerely, and assure you that all efforts are being made to discover what went wrong.
For now, we are back up on emergency power. This should be stable indefinitely but we do anticipate a very short outage in the near future to return to full UPS power. We will advise in advance of that occurring, and will do everything in our power to minimize the disruption, which we anticipate to be under 5 minutes.
FYI, there will be another brief outage on Friday March 27 @ 10AM PDT as our host switches back to full generator backup.
That time in various parts of the world:
Saves me writing a letter out of confusion, and you reading one, that is, if you even read it...:)
