Site Outage and all of its services were completely down today from 10:25 a.m. to 11:35 a.m. EDT. The cause was a fire in the data center that our shared server is located in. The fire was effectively supressed, but the power was taken down as a precaution during the firefight.

Any email sent to a user during that time period may not have been delivered, so I’d recommend re-sending any correspondence from during that period.

For those who don’t know, the website is located on a machine that is shared with several other websites. This machine is administered by Site5 Internet Solutions, and all of Site5’s servers are located at the Network Access Corporation data center in Parsippany, NJ. So when NAC has a problem, Site5 has a problem, and when Site5 has a problem, has a problem. 🙂

In any case, everything is back up and running just fine now.

Let me know if you notice any other problems.
