OK , something really strange seems to have happened over at www.dailypaul.com !

For the last 2 hours or more, there is no website. No redirection page, no site is down for maintenance page, no nothing. Just a problem loading site logo. Has anyone else had a problem accessing it?
If this is true...then please advise the site admin here at RPF's to be on the lookout for this one. Most, if not all reliable info coming out of CPAC is being fed to these two sites!


Also if you are a daily Paul regular, please be advised that there is a simple backup forum set up here>> for emergencies!! http://freedom.coasttocoastmoneybomb.com/user/Discussion.aspx?id=165230


If anyone has any info, please post
thanks!!:)

>>>>>>>>>>>>UPDATE<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< (thanks to bobby 24)


A transformer blew at the data center, cutting power to the entire building. Then the backup generator failed, and they're trying to restart it now.

This has happened before for site maintenance. It is just down for now, I am guessing.

I am emailing Michael about it.

It is up again. And look at the CPAC website, Rand's speech isn't up for yesterday but Trump and Rumsfield are. And there is an IPhone app poll I'm trying to find, a cpac app that Ron is losing and IT WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT CPAC.

What kind of data center doesn't have redundant power, with backup and fail safe generators?

Maintaining a fail-over server at another data center would be a good idea. Not an expensive one, just enough to serve a fail whale status page, or redirect to RPF.

DP & RPF are way too important to be taken down by blown transformers.
