Our server is located in the city of Walla Walla, Washington, and they had a major storm on Friday, taking out power lines etc. Hypography was down for at least 7-8 hours.

Now don't ask me why they would keep 911 open but not Hypo!!! :evil:

Yeah... that's quite a huge storm pounding the west coast. :fire: At least Hypo is okay.
And about our servers...
What made us choose Walla Walla? Just curious.

P.S. Having a city named Walla Walla is almost as embarrasing as it would be to have a president named Huckabee.:eek:

The name Walla Walla is of Indian origin and means "many waters". Both the Cayuse and Walla Walla tribes called the Walla Walla Valley home.

I find Huckabee to be much more embarassing than Walla Walla. :eek:

I'm on it! Which building is our server again? :eek: It's either 3C or 3G I think, but the rain has melted my note paper a smidge. :fire: So do I go for the red wire, or the blue wire? Do you want video of the surprised look on the guy's/gal's face when I show up? :camera: :hyper: All aboard.......:(

Cut both and tie them together with duct tape, works every time.

Yeah, I'm pretty much sick of this weather... :(:eek::fire:

I didn't know the server was so close to the State Maximum Security prison and world famous onion fields.
