More down-time for GimpsterDotCom

Some of you may have noticed that GimpsterDotCom were down for some hours yesterday — it wasn’t my fault this time :-)

The problem was a complete lack of power in the eastern part of Denmark including the southern of Sweden. The blackout started with a Swedish powerplant and then spread to all of southern Sweden. The two major Danish islands Fyn and Sjælland are connected to a Nordic electrical grid so when the voltage droppen in Sweden, then it also affected those parts of Denmark. GimpsterDotCom is hosted by NetSite which is located in Brøndby on Sjælland so my server went down together with everything else over there — I live in Århus in Jutland which weren’t affected.
