Blackout On The Web

According to Forbes a power outage in downtown San Francisco disabled 365 Main, a Web server company that hosts sites including Craigslist, Technorati, SixApart, Yelp, GameSpot, the homepage of Sun Microsystems (nyse: SUNnews people ) and Red Envelope. The outage, which began at about 1:45 p.m. Pacific time, disabled the sites for more than an hour.In a statement issued at 4 p.m. Pacific time, 365 Main said that it was 100% operational again and running on back-up generators until it could confirm that utility power was stable.

An initial report from the blog Valleywag blamed the event on a drunken employee, however 365 spokesperson Cynthia Harris said the rumor was unfounded.
