Potential Outage Tonight

Dear All,

When it rains, it pours.

I just got an emergency email that a chilled water feed to the Computer Science department stopped working, causing the temperature in some of the machine rooms to get over 100 degrees F. Machines in those rooms have been turned off to prevent damage.

It looks like llvm.org has been affected, but the mailing lists are still working. However, temperatures are rising in other machine rooms, too, so it's possible that our IT people will shut them down, too, if the temperature gets too hot.

For communication, please use the #llvm channel on irc.oftc.net.

Dear All,

The fixit people (I have no idea which University division fixes chilled water feeds) has fixed the problem, IT has restarted the machines, and all seems good.
