Turbo, IU PSU units are a real pain to repair. Trust me, I've tried.


I know, I've succeeded.

Chris...

We all had ostriches. My dad had an ostrich farm! I remember one day someone came in and said the high altitude bombing of Kosovo had been a limited success, so we all went out and celebrated… by killing an ostrich and boiling it in kiwi fruit.

Good to be back.

At least there was a message so we were not totally lost.

I was exploring the cave last night. That's why I was late.

You must of had one with the caps were common replacements. That's what was holding myself back. They were all custom values that I could not do any drop in replacements on.

Whew! Thanks AV and good to be back. I was Jonesing like a mofo.

I have changed my personal exploring ethics code. From now on it will be: "Take only aimed shots, leave only hobo corpses." Copper scrappers, meth heads and homeless beware. The Jonsered cometh among you, bringing fear and dread.

Glad you got it back up so quickly!

I found it pretty funny how almost every status update that came up on my Facebook during the 36 hours that it went down had something to do with UER being down.

And the treacherous journey the server had to take across Canada via dog-sled. Harrowing indeed.

But, at least for northeastern US and Ontario readers, we wouldn't have had power to notice UER was down either...

No one on my friends list is from UER, so I had no such concerns.

Power was out for just a couple of hours in my area, so it wasn't exactly a big deal.

No, you're thinking of the power blackout of 2003.

UER itself had a big blackout in 2005 for a few weeks when our dedicated server went down and 1&1 didn't fix it.

Being a geezer as I am, I definitely remember the "blackout" of 2005. Many were forced to actually go out and explore abandoned buildings.
