    slight keming problem in ‘click around’.

  2. Ah yes the old we have a UPS but we didn’t do proper end to end tests of the whole power supply chain problem. It happened in Sydney on the ATC system. In Melbourne on the traffic signal system we cut the mains every three weeks but one weekend a contractor blew the 100A fuses leading into our UPS with a screwdriver.

    I was going to say something, but I didn’t want to admit to reading HuffPo.

    Shit. Gizmodo had the best storm coverage, too. 
    Maybe that means the time to panic is….now. Aaaaaaaggghhhhh!

    And for a brief moment, even those of us who did not have to work today did more work than they had done previously.

  8. woo VPN is in NYC, when I noticed lifehacker was down I figured mine was too..but it’s sailing through. what a crazy fuckin’ storm, huh?

  9. Oddly enough, Amazon’s eastern part of EC2 was and is still up. I think I noticed the lag when more Sandy-affected datacenters spun up machine to replace hardware. Otherwise, it wasn’t a disaster day for me. Hope all your disks fsck okay.
