damned computers

It's midnight and I have to be up at 4am. People in the office, please be kind to the zombie in your midst.

The power went out at about 10:20 just as I was falling to sleep. I couldn't sleep because my servers were on UPS and the beeping was doing nothing but keeping me worried. The UPS went critical at around the 1 hour mark and I shut off the web server and firewall to keep the mail server running, because I'd rather not have to boot that beast again. About 10 minutes later the power came on and I spent the next 20 getting the systems online again. Now I'm writing this post.

Now I sleep. :P
Got up at 4am. Made it to the airport just in time to miss my flight. Caught a standby to Oakland and made it to the office a little over an hour late.

Next time: get up earlier :P
