### Consequences of an outage

What happens when a server ("filer") at blogger.com fails and the guys have a hard time to replace it, just like it happened to this blog in the last 16 hours? Among other things, the following events could be expected to occur:

• Readers in 120 countries are doomed and outraged
• A global conflict is imminent
• Instead of 2,500 page views during the period, they receive 2,500 "403 Forbidden" error messages
