Emergency Backup Blog
— Ace

Sorry to interrupt your Easter like this folks.

There was a power outage at our hosting company.  They switched over to generator power, but then one of the generators had a problem and now they have to check their electrical systems before they can bring things back online.

I had this site already built for testing so I'm pointing over to it until we can get the main site back online.


Update: I have more details from our (regular) hosting provider.

They had a power outage in their Utah datacenter where we live.  They switched to generator backup.

Then one of the generators caught fire.

The fire was put out immediately, but power has been cut to the entire building until a safety inspection has been completed.  They also note that some servers might have water damage and could need a rebuild.  

We might be here a couple of days, so pour yourself a drink and get comfortable.

Side note: Buzzion was playing with a blog feature that lets you automatically insert the reader's name into a post or comment.  He didn't actually stop by and insult everyone individually.

10 Wow, capcha was killing me earlier.
I'm not so sure about this preview feature. It will remove some of the interesting memes that seem to crop up now and again, due to various typos and whatnot.

Why does the wife have to argue with me over whether the grass was really long prior to me cutting it, or just long?  It was neither. It was a bit messy from being i mowed for 5 months. But why start a fight and then get pissy about my answer?

66 So, in shooting news, some good news.  The boss actually enjoyed going to the range this week, and she shot the Model 60 snub nose well (single action most of the time, but that's fine).  And the M1 carbine, as always (pinging the 10-in steel plate @50 yds with ease).  So more range time being plotted now.

Heh. Earlier this evening, I was viewing a short video sent by my sister. She got it from her son, my nephew, who was taking cellphone video aboard his new log salvage boat, cruising the waters of the central B.C. coast.

224 Here’s some weirdness for you webby nerds.
I am in Japan. When i try to access the HQ using a bookmark, I get 404 (if that.)
But I keep hearing about people accessing it, and backup sites, etc. So I did a google search for the mewee group, and it gave a link to the this page…… OK, I click on the google link and here I am. Same url, but different site.
I guess the DNS I am using over here still has the old, wet and toasty server but google knows where thy backup is. So I have two different tabs, with same url, pointing to different web pages.

231 Obviously not all DNS caches have caught up to the change.

That is one of little tidbits in Log Horizon, an expansion pack went live in Japan first and apparently everyone who was logged in waiting for it to be released in Japan instead got pulled into a world very similar to the game. As for the rest of the world, only a few others got pulled in but they did.

234 Anna,
Yes, but I didn't think they would take that long, and I didn't realize that an indirect link (the search page) would send you to one, bypassing the outdated DNS. It's just very weird to me that I have both.
I never read Log Horizon, but sounds interesting.

372 So basically, those of us who are not Boomers have never lived in a serious country.
The decline of the US as a serious country started about the time of LBJ and reached full speed with the Nixon administration establishing whole new departments under his restructuring plan.
Just my opinion. YMMV.

375 Not to put a too fine a point on it, the only blog without commenting that was worth a damn was the USS Clueless.
The sine quo non of blogging and what makes a blog a blog is the commenting and commenter, irrespective of the trolls.
There was a reason Breitbart wanted Ace's Commenters.

Not to worry, we are all in this together and in two weeks we will have flattened the generators and everything will return to the new normal!

389 So does anyone else have posting privileges here other than ace? Will we be waiting for a new post until noon?

Actually a more important question: does ace know his log in info for this backup? :p

396 Why are some comments in smaller font than other comments? I don't see an option for font size on our new toolbar. Although I'm not sure what everything up there means.

401 Smaller font is likely a copy paste on their browser that includes the posted by line and so that formatting carries through. Larger font is because they likely know the html code to increase font.

404 Buzzion, I don't think that's it. The font size changes when I refresh but only sometimes. My first comment posted at the normal size. Then after I made my second comment, which posted at normal size, my first comment had shrunk. I refreshed again and it was back to normal size. 
I see that happening with other people's comments too. Maybe it's a new endearing feature meant to drive us mad.

407 Not too surprised by this generator issue - a major datacenter in France burned down a few weeks ago due to a backup battery going nuclear.  Servers are safe to maintain.  The ways of keeping them on when the grid goes out, not so much.
