What The Fuck Happened?

on 10.25.2005

So like, whoa! Why in the world was crazyshit.com down for over 24 hours? Are you guys ok? Is everyone alive? Did you get drunk, pass-out on a server, and not wake up until a few minutes ago? The answer is yes. Yes to all the questions. Let me explain.

I came to the office, in Downtown West Palm Beach, to stay during the hurricane. Number one, it's a safe ass building, number two, I have a bunch of servers that need to be online, no matter what. That's why we have a generator that powers the whole floor. But here's the kicker, because crazyshit.com is so big, I have different parts of the site at different locations. One of them being here, another in Boca Raton, Fl and yet another in Tampa, Fl. Well one out of the three places failed, and it was out of my control. Their back-up generator that powers the Data Center fucking died on them. Basically it was a fuel pump for one of the diesel tanks took a shit. So that put is down for over 24 hours. Everything else was up and running. Irony is a bitch.

I didn't really get drunk; I did have a few beers. I actually had quite a few at 8 am, hey, I was thirsty! But this storm was way worse that I thought it was going to be. I mean it was fucking nasty.

The first part of the storm, before the eye hit, was ok. It was kinda like a walk in the park. There was some wind, some rain, but all in all, not to bad. But as I woke up from my nap during the eye, I thought to myself, "I wonder when the eye wall will hit..." BAM!!!

After the eye, the storm was bad. I mean, just plain ole' bad. The kind of bad, where the storm would take a 2x4, pick it up, and fuck you in the ass with it. That kind of bad. We are in a 10 story building here in, and I thought the thing was going to collapse. The whole building was shaking. So what did I do? I took a nap. Hey I was tired!

So now, I'm going to update crazyshit. Then I have to head home to clean up my house, which the house itself did ok. But everything around it is trashed. Then to my Mom's to clean her place up. And I'm tired as hell! It's going to be a long day.
