Our Healthy Webservers
More than just software updates:
When you ask an IT department of any company what they do for system maintenance, they might mention regular software updates, keeping the servers in an air-conditioned room, and poking the fans with forks to make sure they are running. We take server maintenance one step further:
Our servers do yoga.
Below are photos from a typical Sunday afternoon yoga session with certified yoga instructor, Mmmmm Page. She works the machines harder than a infinite recursive loop in Perl. Some of the machines cannot take the strain of the workout (see the Tandy below). See the FAQ
for more information.

While our servers might be the only ones in the world to practice Yoga; they need something common to all webservers....electricity! In order to keep all of the webservers running, Humanclock.com has two power generation facilities, one located in North America and the other in Australia.
Our atom splitter thingy, near St. Helens, Oregon, USA. This is the same reactor in that Dandy Warhols publicity photo
Our groovy coal plant in Yallourn, Victoria, Australia. Other than possibly powering a concert, I don't know if this power plant has a place in rock history.
