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.

  • Good news everyone!

    Despite what it may feel like, we always make an effort to see what can actually be done from the ideas that you all submit. Unfortunately some things sit there longer than we’d like due to the fact we don’t always have the right people available that are equipped to handle what it may take to bring some ideas to life. With that said, I intend to create and use this thread to continuously update the community on all the things we are able to implement at a more regular pace.

    To start this thread off off…

    Most cases and kits that would need them now have straps and are wearable! The straps should be able to be altered by your local tailor or seamstress, but if you run into any issues, please feel free to assist with “ATTN: HUSI” at the beginning of the message and we’ll see what the problem is.

    Looking forward to having more updates for you all, until then…Happy Gaming!

    Good news everyone!

    Just as a heads up for all you players who may deal with different types of books regularly:

    The targeting word of "book" has been removed from the following items:
    • Booklets
    • Charters
    • Journals
    • Ledgers
    • Sketchbooks (regular and thick)
    • Tomes
    In short, each item is now targetable as what it is, or what it shows up as in it's brief. This is a move to help with being able to grab what you'd like without having to count out which "book" you want in a list of 20-30. Additionally, every item is still targetable as "volume(s)" so that people can still grab everything all at once.

    As always, if you encounter any issues with this new change, or we missed any items, please feel free to assist with "ATTN: HUSI" at the beginning of the message.

    Happy Gaming!

      Husi, would it be possible to have embinder items 'group' better? I find if I am holding a few embinder-made items, whether books and packages and notecards et cetera, I suddenly am holding the non-descriptive group of 'things'.

      Also, invites and notecards work on skywriter? <3

          We can try to look into this, but please try to submit @ideas so that we can have a proper record of the request. This is going to be more of a thread for updates and we'll continue to take the suggestions through our system in game. Thank you!
