UPS everything

The big brown trucks are everywhere, but that's not what I am talking about.

Yesterday we had a seriously nasty rain storm, okay I live in South Florida, so for many of you it would have been a typhoon.

Our power was lost. No problem I have a UPS on my routers, core machines and VOIP phone. And share space with a Candy wholesaler so we had food :-)

What I don't have in the new office yet is a backup telco.

And guess what also went down.

So the moral of the story is you can plan and God laughs so you should just enjoy a nice cigar while waiting. Thank you to the Hillel PTO for providing them at the Golf tournament.

PS - It got worse. I get home to find the rear passenger floor board in the Camaro has an inch of water in it. You can read and see how this happens here. and a client has corrupted and/or lost their certifiers but that's for another day.
