Perhaps The Eti was found and the project is no longer needed....

It's more likely a space time lag warp is the cause.

ET has been found. The Lab is raided by the NSA. That's why there is no outage.
Nobody there to start the outage.

NSA is now harvesting the IP-addresses of anyone that connects to the servers.

Ah well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.

not really sure how to handle this change in routine. Should I be happy that it looks like we are skipping the shutdown today, or worry that something is wrong because the shutdown didn't happen??

It is about 1pm ish California time, so I guess they still have a window of time to do today's shutdown if they want.

Clearly the space time lag warp caused this not to be Tuesday.

Possibilities:
- it's not Tuesday
- it's vacation for everyone including the script
- they changed the hardware and now can do backups on the fly
- we found ET
- there's nothing to back up
- they heard of the hair burning and moon howling and didn't want any of that again

Someone hijacked the IP and didn't know that there was supposed to be an outage ... ;)

Perhaps they forgot. 😋 Does it need a human to set the back ups in motion, or is it handled by a script?

Well at least I have something to blame when I miss an appointment because I don't know what day it is.

Without a Tuesday outage it is unlikely anyone will set their hair on fire or howl at the moon.
Methinks it is possible Jord will miss the fetid stench.

Or change the name of thread to, "The Seti is Not Down Cafe?"

I could buy drinks for all to compensate for the loss of the outage.

"The Seti Might Be Down Cafe"
Perhaps it's a bi-weekly thing now.

Naw, methinks it was a space time lag warp.

Yes... But for:

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, massive objects warp the spacetime around them, and the effect a warp has on objects is what we call gravity. So, locally, spacetime is curved around every object with mass.

And

In physics, spacetime is any mathematical model that fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensional continuum. Spacetime diagrams can be used to visualize relativistic effects such as why different observers perceive where and when events occur differently.

Basically, a time warp is some phenomenon that changes the flow of time by speeding it up or making it run more slowly. Therefore a spacetime lag warp is double. E=mc² x mc² ?
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!
