Mother Nature 1, Office Zealot 0
Storms went through the Minneapolis area Monday night and scored a hit on Office Zealot. The timing couldn't have been better as I was in Redmond with numerous peers and had to scramble to get back to Minnesota to rectify the situation. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to talk to or say goodbye to numerous people that were attending the event and if you are one of them, please accept my apology. To the readers and bloggers of Office Zealot I also apologize for the downtime. Normally when there are hiccups, I can fix things remotely or am in close proximity to the hardware in case of failure - this time I was on the opposite side of the US and given the nature of the failure I couldn't do anything about it until I got back to Minnesota.
This was the first time that I've experience an event that surely would have been much worse if it wasn't for power surge protection. A surge protector that was powering numerous switches and a battery powered UPS took a huge hit for the team.
