Okay, we just got a fax from the building finally: On Monday, September 12, 2005, at approximately 12:35 p.m., the building experienced a total loss of electrical power from the DWP on their primary grid. At this time, the building generators started and began supplying adequate power to the tenants. At approximately 12:55 p.m., the [...]
Still working on the packet loss.. In the meantime, we thought this was amazing yesterday: Until we checked this morning and saw: (keep in mind the “Impeach Bush” search is actually sort of fake.. it’s just a “spam” search by crazy bloggers to make it show up there.. which really put us as the #1 [...]
We’re now having some problems with our core router (most likely due to the power stuff yesterday) and are experiencing a lot of packet loss to many customers. We’re working on it as hard as we can! We’ll post when we have more news.. hopefully you’ll be able to get here to read it.
As many of you have pointed out there are still some remaining residual issues following yesterday’s power outage. All of our servers are up and running and most websites are functioning normally.

The biggest [...]

If you’re still having problems, please contact our support team and we’ll look into it. Sorry about the problems. More info tomorrow.. we’re having a long day right now.
Okay, this sucked. Literally 10 seconds after Nate posted that last entry, we received an announcement over our loud speakers that our building was being evacuated and we had to leave immediately! (Also, sorry about that post being temporarily taken down, Nate thought it would be better to remove it since it was so dumb, [...]
It seems that a lot of downtown LA is going through a power outage right now. A bunch of us were walking back to the office from lunch at a sushi place, and saw lots of streetlights flashing red, and a few office buildings emitting smoke (from generators). Luckily, our generators are humming along too, [...]
