There will be a power outage on campus from 7:00 am until 9:00 pm on Sunday, August 18th (EDT). To prepare for this outage, all Computer Science Club servers will be down starting at 11:00 PM on Saturday, August 17th. This includes web hosting, CSC Cloud, email, and mirror. Please make sure you save all of your work before then, and we also recommend backing up your files just in case. After the power comes back, some servers may remain unavailable for a few minutes as they boot up. If any issues arise, an update email will be sent with further information.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, we were not able to arrange for a backup generator to keep our servers up.
The official bulletin from Plant Ops can be found at https://uwaterloo.ca/plant-operations/news/service-interruption-electricity-... https://uwaterloo.ca/plant-operations/news/service-interruption-electricity-multiple-buildings-august. The power outage affects most of the North half of campus.
TL;DR everything including mirror will be down Saturday night until late Sunday.
