Power Problems

by @ 10:19 am. Filed under Registry Ops

We arrived at work this morning to find our phone system and a number of computers without electricity and inoperable. Some circuit breakers had tripped and we reset them, but that didn’t work. The Trial Court’s electrician responded quickly, however, and restored the power right away (the offending circuit breakers apparently need just the right touch). Anyway, our website and our telephones were back in full operation by 9:30 a.m. with no lingering adverse effects. Still, this kind of episode always serves as a wakeup call to identify the gaps in your disaster recovery plan. While the hour we were down seems trivial in the aftermath when everything is running fine, when you’re in the midst of the crisis you always vow to be better prepared the next time. The challenge is to follow through on those vows. When this morning’s episode is added to the planned, maintenance-related outage of the www.masslandrecords.com site on Friday night-Saturday morning, our service proved to be a bit erratic this weekend and we apologize for that.
