Darn Those Storms in Texas

Amazing how we're all connected

By Genevieve Schmitt

To those of you who tried to get on WomenRidersNow.com today, you probably figured out that you couldnt. Well I couldnt either. There was a storm in the Dallas area that caused a major power outtage that made my Web site go down. “How could that be,” you ask, “when youre in Montana.” Yea, I wondered, too.

Heres the scoop: The server I am directly connected to is in Nevada, near Lake Tahoe. My server guy, as I call him, runs a bunch of Web sites like mine and hes directly connected to a big deal server in Dallas that controls hundreds of thousands of sites. When Dallas goes down, we all go down. Thats what happened today. I couldnt get on all day. Very frustrating, you can imagine. We apologize for the inconvenience.
