Twice in two weeks. Power is out at our "world class" data center.

Let's see, that makes two outages in less than a month of having a full staff running full operations. Shall we do a bit of simple arithmetic? Say the two downtimes total one hour in the past 30 days: 24 hours * 30 days = 720 hours/month. 719 hours of uptime / 720 hours total = 0.9986. So much for a "five nines" facility.

Woohoo! We the taxpayers of Oregon spent fifteen million dollars and got ourselves a whopping two nines facility!

Gee, isn't is so nice that we're here to bail them out?
