Moral of this story: don't be a twit.
Edit: ok, so when I checked at 10:46 Pacific time, the following message was on ok cupid:
We thought it would be cool to get a cat for the office, but we needed a litter box, and there wasn't really room in the bathroom, so we put it next to these servers in the back, and everything would have been fine, but the A/C repair guy was allergic and the cat reacts badly to loud noises and there were all these wires hanging back there and a bunch of surprisingly flammable packing material...
Erik thought it would be JUST AWESOME to put a paperclip on the end of a rubber band and shoot it at Vinay's eye, and it would have just been Erik and Vinay's problem except Vinay had a cup of coffee and was standing over James, who was fixing our router at the time...
Anyway, we'll have things back up soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
That explains it. Spilled coffee and a cat related fire. Carry on.
