My blog was down tonight due to a power failure.

This blog is being hosted privately, on my own computer, acting as server. And for this reason, it is sensitive to such factors as power failures. I do not have a backup server, nor a UPS, the way hosting services would have.

In Montreal, we have been having difficult weather, with sleet turning into genuine freezing rain. As a result, a power failure did hit me at 22h40 this evening. The blog should have started to become accessible again after 23h40.

The actual power failure only lasted for 10 minutes, from 22h40 to 22h50. But I only restart my computers after I am convinced that consecutive p0ower failures are unlikely. And during the coming day, on February 25, additional power failures are possible, because while the freezing rain is officially over, wind gusts up to 60 km/H are forecast.

Thank you for understanding.

Dirk
