Sorry about that. The system that dragonsworn.com runs on is about 3 years old now. It lives in a datacenter, has for the past 2.5+ years. It's on a surge suppressor connected to a UPS panel. The power is run through the UPS, and an even power pattern is seen always.

However... that wasn't enough to keep disaster from striking and a power supply from dying. dragonsworn.com's current home is a 1ru black-box server. A special power supply had to be located - the one designed for this case - and that took time. It's the one part that could have failed that would have triggered an extended downtime - because I had figured, clean power, no surge - power supply will last forever... like all my other power supplies. I've got 7 year old power supplies still cranking. *sigh*

Anyways, we're back up again. Sorry about that.

Director, Dragonsworn

Um... Thanks for bringing it back up quickly...

You only truly lose when winning becomes more important than playing.
