Backup systems can be useful

This morning MySpace got taken out by a power outage. Totally. For a few hours the entire site was unreachable apparently. I’m sorry, this was the site that was recently claimed to be the most visited domain in the US and they are working out of one datacenter that can be taken out by a power outage? Am I missing something?

As suggested I had a search through Technorati for “MySpace not working” and came across an endless amount of posts along the line of “MySpace isn’t working, it’s driving my insane!” Which is the issue with running your entire life on a social networking site. Especially one that is constantly bringing up error messages and getting hi-jacked by Flash movies.
