We don't have BOOM anymore because the server software is so reliable. But thanks for the lulz :)
This afternoon's server outage came to us courtesy of a loose cable, or a bad connector, or something to that effect. I had them change it and we're back, and as badass as ever.
But *today's* problem was software related. Ran out of disk space and the database crashed.
So it is also hardware related. The software didn't know how to handle the hardware problem.
It also broke my lawnmower. I'm not sure how that happened. I changed the oil and filter, put on two new blades (the old ones were in pretty bad shape even after sharpening), and mowed the front lawn ... then drove it up the driveway and when I put the blades back in gear to mow the back lawn, there was a "plink!" sound and no more spinny blades anymore. No more decapitated blades of grass.
The spring on the belt tensioner broke off. It's got to have something to do with the server and software problems I had earlier in the weekend. The two are obviously related. I think ninja cats may have something to do with it.
It's what they do.
Time to do your snowblower maintenance; this winter is coming in like La Nina!
Please send the Ninja Cat to Massachusetts to pay a visit to my neighbor with the speedboat who likes to rev his engine at 6am....
