You Know It's a Bad Day When....

Dave Aiello wrote, "Some of our readers might be wondering why CTDATA.com hasn't had many updates this week. Wednesday was a pretty bad day in comparison to other days this summer. Early in the morning, we had one of our main servers go down and stay down for six hours. Thanks to Martin O'Donnell, our man in Seattle, who went out to the co-lo and cleaned things up."

"After that bit of excitement I tried to return to my routine daily tasks, only to find that my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee wouldn't start. Fuel pump failure. $700 including labor and tax."

"At times when business has been better, the Jeep problem would have merely been a serious inconvenience. But these days, problems like this are a minor crisis. I'd figure that two unrelated events of this nature couldn't happen in the same day. I guess I was a loser to the Law of Averages."
