Thanks to the extended Radio Newark family, the power supply problem was rectified on Tuesday, the 23rd of November, 2011. Yay! It really brought home how important it is for us to get a redundant server online. (Surprise! No, not really…) I think we’ll be able to score one early next year.
In any case — it’s great to be back! We’ll be updating the NASA and JPL catalogs shortly, and adding a new science podcast, too. More on that as our agreements are finalized.
Thank you very much for your continued interest and support.

On Wednesday afternoon, 11/16/11, a car not far from my home veered off the road, struck a telephone pole, and caused a power outage for about 35 minutes.
Despite being protected by an APC UPS, the power supply on our Dell PowerEdge 1800 server was fried. No POST (power-on self-test), no lights. Nothing.
Needless to say, I’m bummed.
Probably not a bummed as the guy in the car, but I’m still bummed.
If anyone has a PowerEdge 1800 server laying around, would you please contact us? Phone number is (302) 709-1620 or email Steve@RadioNewark.org.
I’ll have Radio Newark back as soon as possible. I apologize for the delay.
