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.

hate sleep

I'm exhausted, between my insomnia and being sick I've been constantly tired for days, but damnit, I want to DO stuff. I want to do some programming. (I want to finish the damn programs I've been working on at work all week! Programming is hard when your head hurts and by the end of the day you can barely focus on the screen well enough to read. :P I also want to rewrite my image gallery generator from scratch.) I want to play some computer games, finish Deus Ex finally, maybe dig out some old strategy/wargames I haven't played for a while and play them for a bit... I want to watch DVDs! I have a huge pile between the few I have that I own and haven't watched and the ones my dad leant me (basically everything he has that I don't) that I need to watch, and of course I want to rewatch some of my old ones. I want to exercise an hour every night. I want to clean up. I want to get a lot more sleep. Bleh. I wish I had 30 or 40 hours a day, life'd be so much simpler. I also need a nanny so that when I want to I can go into that dreamlike state and just code or play games or whatever for hours on end, then collapse and sleep, and then get up and play with the baby for a while. Too much to do, too little time to do it. Damnit.

Anyways. I'm going to bed in a few minutes. G'nite all.

Oh and happy belated birthday greets to mizzzz Blu.

nice site

Lots of interesting personality tests for those that are into those sorts of things. Taking them annoys the hell out of me but I still do it because I like to see what they say at the end. They need a personality test that reads your mind, I hate sitting through all those questions.

Anyway, thanks Renee. :)
