bucket!

never forget 7/24

    "6 back-to-back power outages hit the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco Tuesday afternoon causing major havoc with popular web services. 365 Main is down, along with craigslist, Netflix, Technorati and SixApart."

    Valleywag got all tragicomic and histrionic,
    Laughing Squid has a nice blow-by-blow of the drama.
My favorite quote from the whole ordeal came from SFGate:
    Witnesses who described a blast Tuesday were still unnerved.

    Actor Torino Von Jones, 32, said he was filming a Fruit of the Loom commercial down the block at the time.

    "We were standing over there waiting for the camera cue when we heard a big explosion," he said. "Flames came up taller than I am, and I'm 6-foot-2.

    "Naturally, when you hear an explosion, you think the worst," Von Jones said. Nevertheless, he hurried back to work. "We're Fruit of the Loom -- we've got to make this commercial."
