Article of interest

This time it wasn't our fault. There were power issues due to a substation down the street catching fire. We don't know the details of how it happened. But we do know that there were a lot of surges and some made it through our UPS to take out our main server.

We keep everything backed up so we only lost about 1 day of data. But because the equipment was damaged we had to rebuild some parts our system from scratch.

Sadly, it took a little longer than expected. Once the main systems came back up there were some confugration issues that we struggled with. But we are back and we have replaced our dead UPS boxes with new ones. They saved most of the equipment from any real damage. Only one box suffered serious damage. It just happened to be our main server instad of one of our backup systems.

Oh well, we will get any lingering bugs ironed out in the next day or two and then start back up on our system upgrade to help speed up the site some more.

Thanks for your understanding.
