livejournal off the air

I just went to check for updates at LiveJournal and was greeted by this text:

Our data center (Internap) lost all its power, including redundant backup power, for some unknown reason. (unknown to me, at least) We’re currently dealing with bringing our 100+ servers back online. Not fun. We’re not happy about this. Sorry… :-/ More details later.

It’s 9:18 PM US/Eastern on Jan 14. Guess the folks at LJ just learned the “all your eggs in one basket” lesson. I bet the Six Apart folks are thrilled.
