Service Outage

First dog watch, 1 bell (4:45 pm)

My office has a 10mb fiberoptic connection to the Internet. On most days. Today at 8:15am it went down (and so did this site), and it didn't come up for seven hours.

In the end, it was a squirrel—an evil death-squirrel with nasty, big pointy teeth. Apparently this morning a squirrel chewed through the only above-ground non-redundant fiberoptic cable in the city.

What drives a squirrel to do something crazy like this? My cow-orker John says "female squirrels."
