Tonight (Thursday) from 6-11pm, all of WFMU's internet services will disappear, except for our humble little blog here. The blog pages will appear, but all of our MP3s and movie files will also not be downloadable during the outage.
We're facing off against the WFMU Technology Curse tonight, as Adam and Bill load up all of our servers and Cisco switches and such, load them onto a dolly and wheel them quietly past the drunk staff at our data center in New York City, ideally without waking any of them up. We hope to move into a sparkling new rack space with much better electrical protection. If you recall, last December 14th, our main Realaudio / MP3 archive server was magically transformed into an expensive paperweight, due to the creative electrical stylings of said data center, which shall remain unnamed.
During the outage tonight, you will be totally unable to download this MP3 of Barry Manilow performing the State Farm Insurance jingle to an audience of appreciatively squealing housewife-cum-teenyboppers.
