Anyone else have servers in Redbus Sovereign House? Seems someone managed to turn the power off again today.

Not sure if it's the same place, but Rightmove lost one of their datacentres, too.

Most power seems to be back now but some of our (fortunately subcontracted) servers haven't come back.

http://www.themindgym.com/ is there and appears alive though.

One case of this happening at Sov in 2004, it was someone saying "what's this big red button do?" and pressing the power cutoff button (the one for use by fire services).

One of my former places of employment got a second colo and doubled-up everything (Oracle, Netapps, switches, webservers, etc.) purely because of Sov's amazing ability to lose power.
