Weekend Internet Outages

Unfortunately we experienced three outages this weekend.


  1. A UPS fault due to excessive heat
  2. A second fault due to even more excessive heat, this time because of a failing thermal regulator
  3. A raven visited the electrical transformer outside, losing his life in the process


If bad things happen in threes, perhaps we'll be safe for a while.

We took the opportunity early Sunday morning to reroute some cabling that should prevent a single-point-of-failure issue like we had on the 18th. The current location will be retired some time this summer anyway, but hopefully we will stay working until then.

Here lieth the raven.
