edit 22 August 2011, 6:05 PM: I'm glad to see that we're back online once more. I have no idea how long it was out. (But there was some wild weather yesterday and last night; a tornado ripped through a town west of Toronto late Sunday afternoon. Who knows if there is some sort of domino effect....


edit 22 August 2011, 10:19 AM: and we're offline again. No idea how long it will be. :-(

As always, the way to know whether etherwork is back online is to refresh this page. If you see a leafy image at the top of the page, then you can access the real blog.


edit 21 August 2011, 1:41 PM: and we're back!! (Yay.)

From the updates page:

August 21, 9:54 PM - Server is Back Up

The server is back up and the datacenter is investigating what other damage has been done. For the moment we are up and working. If any work/maintenance needs to be done we will be giving a heads up.

August 21, 9:20 PM - Lightning Strike

Got a series of alerts - there was a lightning strike that hit the datacenter directly. The UPS had a couple circuits blow out so some gear eventually went down after the UPS drained and the rest stayed up okay.

This has been a crazy summer for storms and the second direct hit we've seen. The first did no apparent damage.

Systems are just FSCK-ing (verifying the data) and coming up.

Yup. My real blog is once again offline. No idea how long it will be so.
