Following the same footsteps as the douchebaggery that happened with enron and the power crisis in california, several utility companies such as oncor in texas are doing "rolling blackouts" where power is disconnected for 15 minutes at a time in different regions. They use the power consumption levels due to weather conditions as an excuse. This is most likely done to heavily profit from the increasing price of commodities.This weather was anticipated and not completely unprecedented. Of course, "critical facilities" like the football stadium will be unaffected. In my local news site a bunch of people are calling out the BS in the comments section.

The ES server's hosting company has notified me they've received 2 such blackouts this morning and are now having possible problems with their generator.

Don't be surprised if the site is temporarily down for a few minutes. Backup stuff if you need to, sometimes bad things happen if they yank out the power chord without warning though it's very unlikely in the also unlikely chance the hosting company does not get things under control. I don't know how long these risks will continue, but considering the weather tomorrow will be worse I wouldn't be surprised if it continued onto tomorrow.

Also, go watch the recent chomsky lectures

Update from hosting company

The city of San Antonio currently is experiencing rolling blackouts due to
weather and heavy electrical usage. The Serverbeach datacenter in San Antonio
has had at least two, brief power outages this morning. During the utility
outages our backup UPS and generator picked up the load for the datacenter and
maintained continuous power. After utility power was restored we noticed an
alarm from the generator. We are working on the generator’s fuel line and have
contractors on-site to fix the issue as quickly as possible. The data center is
currently on Utility power, and we are doing everything possible to ensure that
you do not experience a service interruption.

As of this moment, we have the generator on-line and running. Our team is still
investigating to determine what caused the initial alarm.

We will update you as soon as we have further information on the situation with
both the generator and the city wide rolling blackouts.

Military people are just being used and abused by the same system. Studies show the occupations in iraq and afghanistan has made us less safe. It's not 'just another job' and it's definitely not a 'noble cause' in these circumstances. I can't imagine the horrors they face, pretty much sitting in a sardine can for 5 - 8 hours with the possibility they're all going to get blown up or shot at during the mission. There is no glory. There are no heroes. There is no good guy or bad guy. In this case, it's just money, violence and wasted lifetimes.

Yeah, but you can not blame those that go into the military. After they join they are just doing their jobs. That is where a lot of people get confused. Saying they don't support the troops. >.> Support the people that are fighting, just don't agree with the reason.
