Forums Reversion

The cloud server that hosts the main Skotos web site and the forums experienced a hardware failure on Saturday morning that unfortunately led to severe database corruption. Several attempts to restore it failed.

This led us to our backups, but the timing was a bit unfortunate. Since the failure occurred on a weekend morning, we didn't see it until after a new backup occurred, which contained the corrupted data, and which removed our previous daily backup. This forced us to our weekly backup, which was unfortunately at the end of its time: six days old.

So, the forums are back, but we had a six-day reversion.

This should not have affects on the rest of the site, since the majority of our data is saved in our main-user-database or our games, all on remote machines.

    ....And there was a stunned emtpiness when Faer and Edourard finally departed. The guests were shocked into an unusual silence. They quietly placed wine glasses on tables, subduedly glanced at each other, sadly shook their heads....and then the uncomfortable silence was broken by the urbanely absurd:

    Sansamor blandly smiles, "This has been exceedingly ... er, nice. But I really ought to be going. Many congratulations to the bride and groom."

    Amidst the withering glares of the guests, Ravelyn disgustedly ignoring Sansamor, and the total disbelief over what had just been said, I was laughing so hard I could not see the monitor!

    Huzzah to Sansamor for for the best line of the evening!

      re : Sansamor

      Sansamor really had the best lines in the evening. Period. The most overtly obvious was the one chindora used in her last post.

      Sansamor blandly smiles, "This has been exceedingly ... er, nice. But I really ought to be going. Many congratulations to the bride and groom."
      But I remember much earlier in the evening, before Faer and Edouard showed up... Massive scroll with lots of idle chitchat and movement, someone (sorry, massive scroll.. didn't notice who) said the word 'dance'

      Sansamor smiles eagerly, "Did someone say Dance?"
      (or something like that. didn't log)

      The screen goes completely still. Then EVERYONE looks at Sansamor and says "NO!"

      So, thank you to Sansamor's player. You and Faer really made it worth the speed-reading headache.

                      Yes, but Gretchan had the best emote :

                      Gretchan takes a bite of a chicken pie.
                      Gretchan finishes eating a chicken pie.
                      Gretchan brushes her worn hands lightly.
                      Gretchan unobtrusively walks to a long, simple wooden table.
                      Gretchan takes a cake slice.
                      Gretchan turns.
                      Gretchan walks to the west wall.
                      Gretchan nibbles her antique mink-fur cape.

                      Followed by some odd looks Thanks, Gretchan - I love this kind of lovely accident.

                        People makes these kinds of mistakes all the time.. just not in a room with 30+ people during an event that will obviously be logged and read over and over again for months..

                        I have to admit.. I got a good laugh out of it though, even if it was at my expense..
