OSNews, Generic OSes As you've undoubtedly noticed, OSNews has been down most of the day. We're back up now, running like we always do. We rarely have this kind of extensive downtime, so in the interest of full disclosure, here's what happened. If you're expecting some sexy story - think again.

"If you're expecting some sexy story - "

Yes, my first thought was.. Isn't Thom dating Heidi Klum?! .. maybe he lured her back to the server room and condensation from the steamy geeky conversation was causing electrical problems..

hate when that happens.. and i wake up ..

I do not wish to envision any scenario that could possibly involve the words "Thom" and "sexy" together, thank you very much.

Only joking Thom. Anyway, it could have been worse: a co-worker and I once had a very important and old server fall out of the rack (from about U20 or so) when we were moving it. Needless to say, it didn't really work once we tried powering it back on.

That is only slightly worse than my experience. I had a server I was taking out of a rack for service get stuck on one rail. Then I lost my grip. Needless to say that the one rail didn't hold it in place. Down it came with a spray of ball bearings everywhere. Boy that was a bad day.
