    I couldn't get on the site Wednesday evening. Was it down?

    Obviously up again since I am posting this.

    Was just curious if it was a hack attack on the site or something to do with the very impressive lightning and thunderstorm that passed through Portland. Dumped a ton of rain at my house which was nice since I can now turn off the sprinklers for a few days and save some $$$

    Yeah, I noticed the outtage too, but since I worked from 6am to 9pm yesterday fixing broken cooling systems all over the Metro area I could barely stay awake after that when I got home.... :confused:

    Yep, due to a power outage upstream from our data center. Nothing we had any control over.

    Was said power outage related to the increased activity of black helicopters in the area?

    Took me hours last night looking for my foil lined Kevlar battle helmet, I simply must be better prepared for these scares.o_O

    Chem-trails caused disruption under the black helicopters main rotor, thus causing a loss of altitude and enough downdraft to blow my tin foil hat off. While the chopper increased power, the ensuing airflow disturbance blew my tinfoil hat straight towards the main transformer that powers the grid. Sorry guys, next time I'll try to secure my headwear better. :D

    On a positive note I didn't have to deal with "Page crashing" while the site was down.:s0140:

    Can't have battery backs ups, too much of an eco hazard. The environMENTALists suggest that we instead use positive wishful thoughts backed up with magical fairy farts and two scoop of tofu. Or was it three unicorns and a cup of granola? Meh.
