Marty: | Greetings Valued Customers,
| We wanted to send you an email acknowledging what you may have already
| realized, that your website(s) were down for approximately 4 hours today.
| This outage was caused by a router failure at the datacenter that houses
| the servers for many hosting companies on the east coast of the US. I can
| assure you it was not a problem with our services.
| We apologize for your inconvenience.
| Kindest regards,
Me: Yeah, I noticed -- however I reckon that's the risk of any web-based endeavor.
Marty: We appreciate your understanding, thanks!
Friend: i was just sure you'd want to know we were temporarily croaked today. . .but all is well now. . .
Me: I knew that because I am always doing things. I saw my several sites were down, no mail, and checked yours -- saw it was down, too. The web is just like that -- nothing to be done, really. It's a miracle of information dissemination, and sometimes someone has a condom.
