Database Server

I ran into some unfortunate news this morning. My database server is busted. We had a power outage and a subsequent power surge last night. Then the power just stayed off. The computer is on a battery, so I was able to shut the system down properly. I simply went back to bed thinking everything was alright. However, when I got up this morning to power the system back on, I discovered that it’s totally dead to the world. It turns out the power supply is shot. The only problem is, there are no replacement parts available – the power supply is some weird proprietary crap. I’ve tried to find one like this before for a customer’s computer. So, I either have to build a new system, or try to replace the voltage regulators in the blown power supply. Man this sucks, that server also held my source code repository. This is surely going to hold me up for a bit.
