At 2 P.M. I received a call from our computer company. They had just been informed that the state office building which houses the computer equipment for the Internet database for the registry of deeds will be without power tonight and during the day tomorrow. The reason is to repair the building's air conditioning system. Not counting the February 2 power surge (and all the problems that flowed from that), this is the third time the Internet database has gone down on a weekend for electrical work in this building. Unfortunately, moving the equipment to some dedicated computer data center with all kinds of extended back up power would be prohibitively expensive right now. But we do have to find ways to work around these types of problems. We just can't afford to have the system keep going down like this.
