Down again

The site was unavailable to me for the majority of the day. What is going on?
Hope you guys get this figured out. I get the shakes sometimes.

It's like I'm addicted and when the site is down I start pacing back and forth. Back and forth.

This time it wasn't a crash. I'm optimistic that that problem is resolved. The network cable had gotten pulled loose. *sigh*.

I'll send 'em a pizza if they promise to stop with the forced withdrawal. It makes me twitchy. I can't promise how well a pizza will mail though.

AhHa! It failed engineers test #2 (is it plugged in?)

Might be worse, it could have failed engineers test #1 (is it switched on?)

Probably better than kittens. Don't ever try to mail kittens.

The cable was disconnected?

Reminds me of a help desk funny I heard recently.

Caller: "Hello, my computer won't work."

Help Desk: "OK, we'll see if we can get it going for you. Is your computer plugged in?"

Caller: "Plugged into what?"
