365 Main is supposed to have redundant and conditioned power and everything, but the way the lights are flickering South of Market, I think the repeated power outages are a more likely scenario than a drunken rampage. Our IT Staff is reporting power outages as the cause; the machines are up and running, but many of the network switches that connect them to the outside world were reset multiple times. I imagine more than a few network routing tables and DNS entries were hosed today.
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
There’s a funny cartoon about the power outage at ITGumbo. I don’t know what it has to do with Harry Potter, but maybe you’ll figure it out. http://www.itgumbo.com/mumbogumbo/2007/07/the_power_outage_at_365_main_s.php
