Hmmm.. We lost power to a University campus because a duck flew into a
transformer. Does that trump bees in a server?
This wasn't bees in a server; it was bees in a 100KVA power-distribution
At what joltage? At anything above about 60V, bees tend to become
carbonized conductive tracks, and above 370 or so, they tend to create
a vigorous arc.
Someday I must tell you the story of the scorpions in the fibre ducts
and why I have an enduring hatred of having to employ union labour.
Today is a day. In fact, today is one of those days: Melody brought a
gut bug home Thursday, and had to take a sick day yesterday, and today
I've got it. We also have an ice storm aimed at us, expected to arrive
tomorrow night, so I spent the last hour getting the generator ready
and checking it out, and in a little bit I'll have to go out and fill
the gas cans, get some starting fluid Just In Case, and so on.
So vent a little bit, enlighten us, and clean out the pipes on the Net
at the same time. They need it, you need it, and we need it.
