The facility we are in needs to turn off the power for 4-6 hours(!!!) starting around 3pm PST to repair the UPS and switch back to utility power. Yikes, really bad timing with the hackaton at OSCON and all. :-(
Our servers will shutdown around 10 minutes before that and hopefully come back when power comes back. One or two might need an extra kick which we'll get done tonight or tomorrow morning.
More when we know more.
(and of course our European search.cpan.org mirror is out too, so we can't even keep that running. Grrrh).
