Outage info

Posted by Tejus Parikh on February 2, 2007

At some point late last night, the CISCO router that we use to handle our phones and data entered a really funky state and became unresponsive. This of course, led to vijedi.net and choicesquilts.com being down. Of course, the Choicesquilts IT staff, aka my wife, was out of the office all day and the problem didn’t get fixed until a few hours ago. IT catastrophies always seem to happen when there’s nobody around to fix them.

The only reason I’m blogging about this is because last night seemed to be a bad one for networking equipment. Along with my case, one of my collegues suffered a delayed bricking of his linksys and he reported that one more of his friends had a router die. Coincidence, or conspiracy? (Probably just the cold, dry air causing weird static issues).
