To all appearances, the outage which took out sixapart also took out craigslist and gamefaqs.

That's pretty impressive. I checked google for news on what exactly happened but couldn't find any. It occurred to me that in a truly totalitarian state, one would either never actually hear about it or have it explained away as something minor -- a power outage, for example.

Anyway, I set up all of my game consoles (the list will eventually be updated to include my games as well) last night and spent way too long playing Coaster Works.

I'll give you three guesses what I'm going to do right now. And the first two don't count.

slashdot.org has a link to an article that says "<a href="http://valleywag.com/tech/breakdowns/a-drunk-employee-kills-all-of-the-websites-you-care-about-282021.php had gotten in and damaged 40 racks</a>" http://hardware.slashdot.org/hardware/07/07/24/2210255.shtml

I was wondering what the hell was going on last night! That was an impressive power outage they had. Well, hopefully I'll see you guys tonight (after Lost Boys at the beach)

For at least one San Francisco outage in the past couple of weeks, the explanation was that it had rained a tiny bit after a longish dry spell, and the dust accumulated on insulators turned to conductive mud, triggering circuit breakers etc. I got that from the Chronicle; don't know the date exactly. It was only like a couple mm of rain that did this. :)
