I woke up today around 10:30am (pretty early for a Sunday)
with a strange feeling. It felt chilly and I realized
something was wrong. Suddenly, everything just turned off.
A power outage...The UPS in my closet started beeping.
After a few minutes, I resolved to get out of bed and check
on it. The server was not on. I thought that the UPS was
broken as I never really tested it in a power outage. I
angrily went back to bed and lay there for a while
thinking..As my brain began working after my long slumber, I
began thinking that perhaps I misconfigured my UPS. I went
to go check on it and realized I had plugged my server into
the surge protected outlet instead of the backed up outlet.
BAH! I fixed this and was able to boot up my server
normally. Power went back up at 12:10pm. Right now I am
pretty angry at PG&E (Pacific Gas
and Electric) for being so incompetent...
I finally released GtkHx 0.8. I had to do it as the Debian
package had an important bug in it and my Debian Application
Manager said I had to fix this, as a final "test" I suppose,
before he would recommend me to the NM committee. There are
a few bugs in it, but it is pretty functional.
