Why I run my own blog

Every now and then, especially when I’m facing my own computer problems, I think “why don’t I just give it up and get a Livejournal. And then today every Livejournal page is showing the same text:

Our data center (Internap) lost all its power, including redundant backup power, for some unknown reason. (unknown to me, at least) We’re currently dealing with bringing our 100+ servers back online. Not fun. We’re not happy about this. Sorry… :-/ More details later.

If there’s going to be a massive screwup making my blog unavailable, I want it to be *my* screwup, dammit.
