"The system is available 24 hours a day"

I was looking at internal-only benefits-related site at work today and
found this note hilarious.


The System is available 24 hours a day except during daily backups
Monday through Friday , 11pm - 11:30pm PST and during weekly backups
Sunday 3pm - 9pm PST.

So the website is available 24 hours a day except for those 5 1/2
hours a week when it isn't available.

Hi Google Community Content reviewers -- this ancient post has twice been tagged as Sensitive Content. For the life of me I don't know what could be considered potentially offensive.

Since I've picked up a hp camera, the kids and I have been going crazy taking pictures. Last Saturday while killing time while the kids were at art classes, I took a random walking tour of Manchester, NH.

  • WPA-era statue of the America Revolutionay War Brigadier General Casimir Pulaski, formerly Marshall General of Poland. This photo was even taken on href="">the official General Pulaski Memorial Day!
  • Wagner Memorial in Manchester (Who is Wagner? Memorial to what?)
  • old fire alarm boxes
  • Lieberman NH Political posters
  • poster for the world premiere of 'Druid Gladiator Clone' a movie made in Manchester, NH (that has got to win for coolest new movie title.)
  • The Cadillac Motel: Rooms for a night or a life time (Rooms by the hour too?)
  • General autumnal pictures of New Hampshire
  • Take a look.

    A 'Challenge Bush in NH primary' site is a blogger

    I was reading the local Merrimack href="">free newspaper and there
    was a letter to the editor by David Gosselin announcing his new site,, to encourage
    someone to challenge George W. Bush in the NH primary. The
    interesting thing is it basically a blog with trackbacks, pingbacks --
    the works! Dave Winer would be
    proud of this politico getting his message. ;-)

    Free State Project has chosen New Hampshire!

    should make New Hampshire all the more interesting. It seems to me
    that in the last 20 years New Hampshire has become more progressive
    than it used to be, at least in the southern part -- mostly due to the
    shifting demographics of other newcomers from Massachusetts and other
    states following jobs up here. If 20,000 libertarian true believers
    move to the state it will be fun to watch!n
