Default Apologies for Site Downtime

"Sounds like you've got a case of the Monday's!"

Yes, it's true. Monday can be one of the roughest days of the week to work through, because the weekend is over, and so is the relaxing. Plus, with everything ramping back up to start the new week off, sometimes things go wrong, and people get frustrated, hence why the above quote rings so true today. I normally like to begin my Monday's off with a look at tech news around the Web, and enjoy some fresh coffee, but today, I had some site downtime to "enjoy".

I'm not sure when the site first went down, but it was at some point during the morning, and well into the afternoon, EST time. The downtime began as a planned event, as our data center had to lay down some fiber lines, but when things looked to be wrapping up, an important switch ended up dying. I'm not sure if these two events are related, but the latter was certainly not appreciated.

So, allow me to apologize for any inconvenience that our downtime may have caused. I'm hoping that things are free and clear now, and nothing else will break throughout the day. I'm off to get some work done... right after I toss this event on my list of "reasons why I hate networks".

Haha! Yes, it sucked, big time. So glad it didn't last longer than it did... I was going mad.
