Sorry about the downtime this morning. It seems a transformer blew in the neighborhood at or about 9:20 CST.
The electric company had us back up and running in about a 1/2 hour tho. They are pretty good about stuff like that, although I suspect it's more for their revenue than our convenience, but whatever gets the job done.
It was kinda wicked tho. The transformer that blew was right here close to my house as I was sitting here typing up my latest review and "booom!" and then "beep, beep, beep..." of my old and wore out ups. I had less than 30 seconds to shut down the server and save my work and shut down the desktop. I usually waste 10 of those looking around, going "huh, what, what da'?" I apparently made it tho as no fsck ran upon restart.
I apologize for any inconvenience.
