Power now out - (was Brownout)

Post by PlasmaJohn » Sat Oct 08, 2005 5:02 pm

Yep, we're down.

It's rainy season and the house just browned out briefly. If another one hits for an extended period of time we may lose the game servers.

I thought you had that 10-speed hooked up to a generator in the garage to avoid these problems?

I can if someone sends me the mod. I'll just leave it running on the server here.

It's just called "The Garage". It's really a 10-story building in NJ. I don't have any pictures of it on this computer.
