Here's what's going on.

Our server farm is located in our home, specifically in a loft in the detached garage.  As it's a separate building, it has its own power, which is fed from a powerline from the house.

This winter has been more brutal than most, and the powerline to the garage (which is original to the dwelling) has frayed with the influx of ice.  This fraying has caused the line to short out.  This is why the power is out, and Squidge.org is down.

An electrician was able to come out last night on an emergency call (electricians are about 30 days out where we are, due to weather).  He diagnosed the issue, and said that he was going to have to replace the line between the house and the garage.  He was going to expedite it; someone is supposed to come out today - but that doesn't necessarily mean that the job will be completed today.  I'm hoping it will be, but I'm not holding my breath.

More updates as I get them.  Think good thoughts for them to complete the work today and that we can come up later on - hopefully that will happen.

We are getting a speed upgrade today, so we will be going down soon (~10am) until they bring us back online - about an hour.

We're going to have a short downtime at 4pm Pacific for network maintenance.

We will be taking all website offline on Saturday morning for some much-needed operating system and other software updates. Tentatively scheduled for July 4th, 2015 at 08:00 Pacific Time.

I'm adding in some new hardware and will be having to unplug and move some servers around, so there will be intermittent connectivity issues between 4pm and 5pm today.  All services will be affected.

Back up!

Good news! We are all back up and running. Looks like we had a few issues that were resolved with some proper reseating of cables, and then a quick networking issue - but we're up now!

Don't hesitate to comment if you see issues.

I need to install a new UPS (battery backup) so there will be a very quick downtime at 11am Pacific time as I shut down machines and rewire.

I need to do some database maintenance, so I'm taking the webserver down at 12Noon Pacific for about 30 minutes.

Looks like we're in the middle of a network outage right now. No ETA at the moment.
