Back when we were going through the ONElist/eGroups merger, we had some fairly significant downtimes, as we first moved the ONElist service to our own servers from Digital Nation, and then as we merged the two services. We needed a down page, something to display on the web site during these down times. I wanted it to be something humorous, and I worked with Jack Wu to create what became the ’eGroups Plumber’. Tomorrow, we are moving the Bloglines site from one data center to another, and upgrading some of the hardware along the way. The site itself should only be down for about an hour, if we’ve done our homework correctly, but we still need a down page. So, I proudly announce the return of the plumber.
