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.

  • Open Positions for the Office of the Royal Healers: Orderly

    Have you ever wanted to learn more about the healers and medicine but didn't know yet if you wanted to dedicate yourself fully to the path of being a Healer?

    The Royal Healers are looking for more members to join as Orderlies, the introductory position of the Royal Healers that has a no-strings-attached approach of learning more about the Office.

    An Orderly needs no lengthy prerequisites or training to join; you need only be a denizen of good standing that is at least a Welcomed Guest of Her Majesty's keep of at least moon. Special considerations may be taken for less time in the keep.

    An Orderly is not expected, nor even allowed, to participate in the healing process directly. They receive no formal (ooc - teaching of Healer skill) training, and are instead meant to facilitate the various Healers in performing their duties by way of fetching materials, assisting in carrying objects, and other menial tasks.

    So what's in it for you? You get valuable experience in a field that might interest you to peruse further with no expectations aside from performing the minor tasks assigned to you. After a period of a moon, should you wish to continue as a healer, you can take the formal oaths, and receive introductory training as a Nurse's Aide (ooc - receive teaching to Fellowcraft of Healer skill). No recommendations are needed; you'll earn them as you work as an Orderly, or decide it is not the position for you!

    If this sounds interesting to you, send a missive to myself, Doctor Dolph Li'Astri, Royal Chief of Medicine. Include your name, length of time waking (if returning to the keep, please include separately the amount of time CURRENTLY waking as well), your normal waking bells, and a small sentence or two about what attracts you to the position. We will meet as soon as possible to move forth.

    Livery: Orderlies of the Royal Healers wear a pale-red armband with a caduceus on it to signify their position in Office.
