One hell of a storm.

That was quite a storm last night.

Around 10:30 last night, the lights started to flicker. The cycling power seems to have fried some key piece of hardware in my linux server (where neeuqdrazil and I keep our e-mail, among other things). Due to earlier hardware problems on my workstation, that box had been off for a couple days, so my off-system backups for the linux box are a couple days old. When I get home tonight, I'll have to excavate the server and see if there's enough of it left to display error messages (right now it doesn't have a monitor, keyboard etc. hooked up). The savings I had set aside for replacing the linux server has cleverly evaporated in the last couple weeks, so this could be fun.

In addition, the storm last night knocked out the water to our building somehow. This means no shower this morning, and no brushing teeth. I am glad that there's a gym at work where I can do these things, otherwise it would be a very stinky day for me.

On the plus side, the problems with my workstation have mysteriously vanished.

there was a storm? I mean, aside from all the wind and occasional lightning flash in the west... It rained? there was thunder? I went to bed at midnight and was disappointed by the lack of show. K-W got hit, I know, but I think it completely side-stepped St. Clair West when it got to TO...

We totally missed it further south (College/Carlton). Just lots of crazy wind.

According to the IntarWeb, Toronto only got 1.2 mm of rain. So, just enough wind and lightning to fry a server and somehow burst a watermain. I definitely heard thunder at my stretch of St. Clair West, though.
