the entire domain was down last night for going on 8 hours, some stupid road workers cut right through a major fibre optic cable with a jackhammer, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

This wasn't my hosts fault, they lost out just as much as I, this was the b/w providers fault who did infact have redudency for this sort of problem (multiple gigabit lines so that if one goes down they still have capacity) but unfortunately all there bandwidth capacity was on the same node and it wasn't meant to be! (someone may get sued).

Server is in Canada btw.
