I say this time instead of spending weeks & months fixing it they should take the old fashioned route of just shouting obscenities/kicking it until it works again.

If I understand correctly, CERN is owned by TPTB. Read the last line and you have to wonder, why the rush?

I think this LHC is turning out to be one huge lemon of a machine
You have no idea how swell this machine is. I'm now in about 1500 feet from the LHC ring. The commissioning went smoothly, we have collisions, all 4 experiments took first ever data, and things are looking up.
The fact that a high voltage line somewhere had a problem can excite only the ignorami. That's the level they operate in. No light in the toilet = bad.
LHC is safe and sound and I'm proud to contribute to this historical endeavor.

So how big a deal is this power problem? Will it be days or weeks before its back online?

Even as a programmer I realize that you can't code a program one time through and expect everything to work perfect.
Yes you can!
Especially if you use classes which are pre-tested
