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.

  • "Everyone Can Paint" Unity of Arts Bells

    I will be hosting regular painting bells for anyone interested in Art to come and have a go at the canvas.

    All are invited, both those who are already confident in their abilities and those who are just trying out something new for the first time! We'll have a no judgement zone, all coming together to support each other!

    And I'll be there to help give any pointers or help and offer instruction as needed or desired!

    Each week we'll have a different "prompt" to help give inspiration, in case you don't know WHAT to paint, but everyone's free to paint whatever they want. Work on a piece you've already started, or start a new piece that has nothing to do with the prompt. It's all Art!

    If you need supplies, I will have some on hand, but feel free to bring your own things if you already have them! (You can write ahead if you want, to make sure I have enough.)

    This first week we'll meet at the eighth late bell on Sun's day (OoC: Sunday, 7 Jan @ 8pm EST) in the Bowling Lounge.

    Speak up if you have a suggestion for our first "prompt"! Pin a note here or send me a scroll if you have something you'd like to see! I'll start putting together a list of good ones for future sessions!

    And remember - EVERYONE CAN PAINT!

                  Due to all the fun Winter Festival activities today, Everyone Can Paint is being moved to take place at FIVE LATE BELLS, and will this time be by the fireplace in the Dining Hall, to keep everyone close by for the snowball fight afterwards.

                  Our theme this week is getting announced in advance:

                  We will be working on pieces that fit the theme of the Winter Festival Art Competition (OoC: http://forum.skotos.net/forum/our-ga...rt-competition )!
