Did you miss it?
Did you keep getting this infuriating message?
I missed you all, guys.
I felt like a mother whose child was in surgery.
My site host told us it was a “power surge” that caused it.
Here’s what one fellow blogger was told:
At approximately 6:22 PM MST our primary Data Center experienced an electrical transient. An Automatic Transfer Switch on one of our legs of power failed, causing some servers to lose power. Our systems are designed with multiple redundant sources of power, so that power is automatically transferred to keep your servers up. In this instance the switch failed and sent a spike back at one of our transformers, causing some additional problems. Our technical teams of Data Center Technicians, System Administrators, and power experts responded immediately and are working continuously to bring all our customers back online.
We have many redundant systems in our Data Center including backup generators and 4 different UPS legs of power. We test all our backup systems every two weeks and we perform regular maintenance on all systems by qualified personnel, all in an attempt to provide you the most reliable service possible.
We pride ourselves on delivering outstanding reliability and an outstanding customer experience. We realize that tonight the services we’ve delivered do not live up to your or our own–expectations. We will continue to evaluate every element of this particular failure to eliminate the possibility of this occurring again.
We appreciate your patience and support throughout this issue. We welcome your feedback on how to continue to improve our platform and our services, as well as how we can better communicate with you in the future.”
Then the site host also posted this on Facebook:
Our Data Center just experienced a power surge that has caused some of our servers and our phone network to be temporarily unavailable. Our professional 24/7 admin team is already on hand working to get those servers and our phone network back online as quickly as possible. We will post updates here on Facebook and on Twitter. Thank you for your patience.
In any case, I’m so glad to be back up :)
On with the debate.

Ay salamat akala ko may kudeta na? Mabuti na lamang at naibalik dahil kong ano ano na iniisip ko? pero paano yong KAHOY????? ha ha ha ha……
I was a bit concerned yesterday. But when I saw your posting at FB that the problem had to do with your site host, I calmed down. Thank you for that. I went to bed worry free for you and Alan. :)
thanks for the concern Cha, and I for one look forward to reading more of your comments
enrile cares as he said point blank; “eh yung mga kahoy” nothing else.
tell them about TMR (Triple Modular Redundant) Configurations. This type of system is only used on Petrochemical plants, there can never be any shutdown of power. It goes like this:
Every cause of failure shall be provided with 2oo3 (two out of three) sensors, each sensors connected to an input of a TMR. Thus if one input fails down, the two remaining sensors will decide if both say yes there is a power surge. The TMR will activate three output with synchronized voltages, if one unit breaks down, the two unit still working the power remains…
but TMR are very much expensive he he he he but this system is required if millions of dollars is lost in a minute he he he
the CPMer’s emotions cannot be shutdown not for a single seconds he he he thanks to yahooo and goggle and other methods of entry to Raissas blog, we are alive, thanks also to STC (Saudi Telecom Company) and mobily he he he, though each CPMer’s system are not redundant, simplex by economy of each users, still, the messages and comments do come and go by these daisy chained of Network he he he he
