Power Outage!

So I'm digging through my email this morning, suddenly mozilla stalls. Not a terribly uncommon thing when I'm reading email. Its infrequent, but not unheard of. I just switch to the next folder and start though the next email alias. This morning was no luck with that either.

Hmmmm....

Gee... I get no response from my lab boxes either. Did the VPN connection drop? (Working remote today.) Nope. I still can surf.

Maybe routing is screwed up. I log into the corefile server in Colorado. I can get to that, but I get a big 'ol:

Could not chdir to home directory /home/pwags: Permission denied
That's wierd. The corefile server can't ping my office either.

So I make a call to our local office Administrator. Yup. Power's out in the building.

Nice. Guess a UPS on the server doesn't do much good when all of the other equipment goes dead now does it? At least I can blog.
