Sites having problems. Why? Hardware's having problems. Why? AC is having problems. Why? Our colo is having problems. Why? Apparently due to the heatwave we're having in NYC.

Temperature today peaked at almost 105 degrees F (41 degrees C) in Manhattan, which was a wee bit higher than we're used to. Apparently our hosting facility wasn't quite up to snuff and so their AC fried trying to cope with cooling down multiple floors of data centers and so died. Some of our Sun boxen recorded internal temps of over 120 degrees F/50 degrees C. Boxes were automatically shutting themselves down to prevent permanent damage. Things are not good.

I think they're getting back under control now, but I can guarantee you there's going to be hell to pay for this. Sigh.
