Co-Lo Stability Problems

Unfortunately, our co-lo had some stability problems Friday morning.

First up, they lost all of their connectivity to the facility that holds all of our games. This took them about 40 minutes to diagnose and a bit longer to restore.

Much more astonishingly, they rebooted all of their machines (which means all of our machines) while they were fixing the problem, with no notice. This probably had minimal repercussions on the SkotOS games (Marrach, Ironclaw, Lazarus, and Lovecraft). There may have been a rollback of an hour or two.

TEC and Grendel's Revenge are more troublesome. TEC will suffer a rollback of 10 hours, to midnight (PT) last night, since the unannounced reboot happened one hour before the next backups. GR suffered a more complete failure. We're being forced to restore the entire machine from its backups, then we'll need to restore the game from the backups stored within that backup. The lineup of dates look promising (which is how we laid them out, 'lo these many years ago), so the hope is that we'll only suffer a 7 hour rollback, to the 3am (PT) game backup, but it's a bit dicey at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience; we're now making sure everything is stable, and we're looking into whether our most recent upgrades to TEC will support increasing the backups to every 6 hours.

Edit: The GR problem is proving even more intractable than hoped. As best I can tell, our colo is still having some issues because I can't boot the first restore I made of GR and I can't build a new node either. I expect this will just clear when they get their act together, but in the meantime I'm not able to get GR back online until they fix these problems.

                I too, am greatly excited about this opportunity. I'm smart, creative and I catch on quick - plus I'm willing to dedicate my time to helping create a Skotos game.

                If you still need me, let me know - send me a pm, or reach me at:

                  Despite this game having fallen by the wayside as far as production goes, is there still an opportunity for it to be picked up again? I'm the original creator and I recall it being pretty decently on the track toward completion. Hate to see everyone's hard work go to waste.

                    Still in it

                    I would still be interested in finishing this game.

                      Good evening,

                      I don't know who is running the show over here as I have seen a handful of different people say so.

                      Nevertheless, I'm looking to join the team as a Builder and potentially a VP in due time.

                      Shoot me a pm if you're still looking.

                        I also would love to help. I don't know much coding so unless you're willing to teach me I can help there, but I could VP and help with story plotting

                            Is this project ongoing? If so I would love to get involved!

                            A PM is the best way to arrange contact.

                                Regent's Fate is pretty ancient, I'm fairly sure it was shelved the greater part of a decade ago to be honest and I've not seen Jen around much in the time since.

                                Still, if anyone ever picks it up, I'm willing to offer coding expertise/assistance or advice from a distance, but I'm afraid I don't have the spare time to really commit to any game other than the one I'm working on now.
