A fire in a data center in Seattle has taken some big websites down. One of them is a favorite of mine, geocaching.com. This is bad news coming at the start of a long weekend when thousands of people will be heading out to find some geocaches. Fortunately I have several queries that run and download automatically, so I have fairly current data on my PC to work with. I do bet many players in this high tech game of treasure hunting are pulling their hair out right now. Hopefully the folks at Groundspeak will be able to pull something off to work around the problem. Probably not how they wanted to spend their 4th weekend though.
