I showed up to work this morning only to find that the backup battery attached to the server had died, which caused a big paniced mess. Imagine that, the item that is supposed to ensure that the server is up was the source of the problem.
My small amout of electronics saved the day, which is sad, because the solution was purely based on common sense.
Homework is due at midnight and I am 0% complete. I did however finish much of the structure i was working on in minecraft.
