Sharp-eyed C.O. fans will have noticed that for the last few hours (OK, since the middle of the night) C.O. has been MIA. Well, we discovered the cause. Our crack IT team was deployed overnight for some routine maintenance, and they
intentionally inadvertently messed up the TCP or the IP and then that borked our LAN or our FTP or the Packet Switching, screwed up the Secure Socket Layering (SSL,) and blasted us from Austria to Ghana (ouch) to Burundi to just outside Ft. Knox, Kentucky. BAM! Where we sat up until this moment, 12:39pm PT.
But we got onto the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
And they said somebody just nommed on the power cord a little.
