Odd failure last night, anyone else?

This is a long shot, but last night, within the span of about four or 
five hours, I had four independent systems fail in one form or another. 
Did anyone else have any failures last night?

On the first, the keyboard totally freaked out and wasn't fixed by a 
reboot. It's still messed

On the second, the wireless dropped and wouldn't come back on until the 
machine was powered off.

On the third, the network switch locked up and four of the eight 
machines on the network went down. One was frozen so hard it needed a 
cold boot. The other three's interfaces wouldn't get an IP. Even 
manually assigning IPs didn't help and all needed to be power cycled 
before they'd pick up IPs again.

In the forth case, a Xen server kernel panic'ed and rebooted.

This all happened between about midnight and 4am. Anyone else have any 
problems around that time? These four machines are all independent and 
half were in Oakville and half were in Toronto.

Solar flare? Gremlins? Dumb luck?
