I thought this was too shocking to be true but the other system admins confirmed it – Google officially wants to be the next god of the universe. The datacenter that houses over a hundred of our servers also caters to some of Google’s servers, and apparently Google also owns part of the building or something like that. They decided that they don’t have enough power for their servers, so they are actually demanding that the entire datacenter be stripped of all power for about two hours while they install more power lines. No, not more power for the datacenter – but just for their little cage. So basically, all hundred or so of our servers housing thousands of sites (as well as the other hundreds of servers belonging to other occupants of the datacenter) are going to be powered down for two hours so Google can expand their empire and eventually take over the world. I hope Google is happy with the fact that we’re all going to lose customers and reputation over this, so happy that they all get gonorrhea and die.
