There I was, enjoying a nice meal with family & friends on new years eve, when I get a call from our security company... the alarm in the office had been triggered, but only in the server room. That's strange, because you can't access the server room without going through the main office. I decided it was worth the 15 minute drive to investigate, especially after the huge storm that had just passed through Canberra
roof of our office building was damaged and our office was flooded! The servers,
printers and some workstations were drenched. I spent part of last
night and most of today cleaning up, shifting furniture etc so the
water could be mopped up! The carpet cleaning guys have just finished, I expect the carpets will take a while to dry out.
At this stage the waterlogged pc's are drying out on my garage floor (most were turned off at the time and should be ok),
and we hope to be able to move back into the office sometime tomorrow,
however I expect that we will be a little slow responding to email
& support issues over the next day or so as we get our machines up & running (or restore from backups if need be).
