Brown Out Disaster

Posted at — Jun 15, 2020

About 90 minutes ago I had a brown out. And since I have been training myself to keep the lab lights out I was not paying attention to it. As a result I was about to login and post a blog only to realize a number of failures in order…

Anyway it was a cascade of realization…

Needless to say there is a power problem here along with more stupid dependencies. One serious problem is that I needed to be in the room to restart this… if this had been a datacenter it would require an operator to step in. Or it might require that I have IP addressable power strips. Which only serves more problems.
