the 3am reset

in my lab at a random time between 0250 and 0310, all the machines in the building reset. if you stand right at the back of the lab, with all the lights turned off, you see a beautiful scene - sixty or seventy screens lit up pale blue, surrounded by the sparkles of HDD indicators, the little dots of red emerging from underneath the optical mice, the status LEDs in bright yellow on the CD drives and the glitter as the blue glow reflects off the silver of the deactivated ceiling panels. it's wonderful - the closest thing i'll get to the Aurora Borealis. i've never seen anything so beautiful.

That so reminds me of my lil server room during and after a power outage. I sometimes stand there for a few minutes watching and listening to the sound of hard drives and fans spinning up.
