Power outage

We had a power outage in the ICS department over the weekend. Luckily, nothing important seems to have been damaged. It is a bit disconcerting to see such a thing happening in the midst of the organisation efforts for the ICFP Programming Contest... Especially since we want to start with the first test runs. We deferred the start of our test run by two days. There is still almost three months to go before the contest starts, of course. (Actually: today is exactly 3 months before the contest ends.)

Our systems people are still busy to find out what exactly happened. Only our department seems to have been affected - other floors of our building haven't had any problems.

Ah, so that's the reason why some engineer barged into our room to check all the power outlets. The strange thing is that there was a test of the power grid a few weeks ago that did not show any problems.

Ah well, good thing we all use laptops :)
