The server was down for about ten hours yesterday. The building we're on switched over to a new air-conditioning system yesterday and we had to switch off everything for the recommended ten-hour stretch - if we didn't want anything to be damaged in the event of a power surge.
It would have been easy to switch the server over to the spare iMac I had running at home (I've done that before and switched servers, on the fly, within 30 minutes, in the ultimate test of disaster recovery) but somehow, this time, I just let things crash.
It's been difficult to get going the last few days - so many things to do, along so many axes. So it's good to crash and start all over again.
Sorry, if you were trying to get hold of something here. Normal services are resuming and the process of recovery starts now.
