Potential Downtime

This post is more than 2 years old.

For those who are worried (or just curious), Hurricane Katrina should be a bit to the east of where I live (Lafayette). They are calling for winds around 20-30 MPH with gusts up to 60. Even with that though we are on the "good" site so I'm not too worried.

What worry me is electricity. We tend to lose like a third-world country, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm off the grid for a day, maybe even more. Just want folks to know in case I don't respond to mail, Ask a Jedi questions, etcetera etcetera.

On the other hand - today is probably the hottest day of the year. I think it's around 140 degrees or so. Thank God for air coditioning.

Good luck, I went through 3 here in Orlando last year, but this one heading your way looks to be much worse. Lets hope it dies down a bit while hitting the coast.

Join the club... our power over here in Campbell, CA went out and there wasn't even a storm. when the power came back on my main Active Directory/Exchange server was completely dead (as in lifeless). I went down to the local electronics store (Fry's) and bought a $40 power supply, got it home and it had the wrong connector for the motherboard! I brought the old one with me on my second trip and got one for $60 with the correct connector and I'm back up... I was about ready to just but a whole new set of hardware... lesson for the day... backup your valuable projects every day.
