Why The Sites “You” Care About Are Down…

game_overComing from an extensive IT background, and now, in the position of supporting a company’s 365/24/7 environment, I see now “what not to do”. Now, many of you may be jonesing to order Netflix (supposedly down due to a software upgrade) or trying to blog your way to heaven (LiveJournal or TypePad), buy or trade crap you don’t want or buy stuff you do (CraigsList), or maybe just buy one of those servers that’s not supposed to go down (Sun Microsystems). Now we can’t even find out what news is cool either, since Technocrati is also serviced by 365 Main in San Fran.

Now stories aside, the data center folks say it was due to a drunk employee within a facility, but it seems all of San Francisco is having a major power event, so stay chill folks, and maybe step into the analog world for a few hours and talk to people person to person… or at least, use you BlackBerry, they have their stuff in Canada, eh?!

Computer Geek, Music Junkie, Movie Fanatic, Beer Aficionado, Part-Time Amateur Photographer… Amélie has lived in D.C. off-and-on for the past 23 years, always calling the National Capitol region her home. She’s also probably one of those types of odd-folks with realms of useless trivia you’d like to have on your side during a pub quiz.
