The facility that houses THR's servers is doing some electrical work tomorrow. The work is currently scheduled from 7am to 7pm, and during this period we'll be running on big batteries and diesel-powered generators.

There should be no service interruption whatsoever, but sometimes things happen. If you see an outage tomorrow, it's probably a result of this rather than something malicious.

Thanks.

Low probability, but I worked at a place that tested the generator every month. One time the transfer switch would not switch back to regular power and the whole data center lost power. And I was on call:eek: And it was an electric utility:rolleyes:

The only real problem is if you have some really old servers that can't take the stress.
