I am planning to have the sharpnet network information on two different servers, one in The UK ( and in the US ( that way if one server is down the other will contain the reason of the problem.

The Planet DC H1 Crash

The Planet Houston Datacenter 1 (US) or Server Farm 1 (GB) electrical power equipment blew last Saturday and this resulted in a catastrophic service interruption that is still felt today 🙁 we still face intermittent service but it is getting better.

The consequences of this accident, where no one was hurt, has made me rethink the security and vulnerability of the server we have there. We now are in the process of migrating to a new server in the UK and this should take a couple of days.
