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.

  • Members of the Royal Healers: Board of Medicine

    Good day,

    Currently, the Royal Healers has a Board of Medicine, a four-member panel consisting of a healer from each rank of the Healers: an Aide, a Nurse, an Apprentice, and Doctor.

    The current duties and roles of a board member are to be available to meet with the Royal Chief of Medicine to discuss the Healers in the following ways:
    • Aid in the selection process of new promoted healers
    • Come up with ideas regarding treasury expenditures.
    • Assist in the creation of Healer-related activities for the keep
    • Suggest lesson plans and teaching
    • Other matters as they arise
    Meetings will not be taxing, long, or overly often. They will occur as needed, when all members of the board are able to synchronize meeting times. The only requirements I have for those interested are a focused mind and serious aptitude to do this properly, or else it will fail before it starts.

    If you wish to be a part of this panel, send a scroll to myself, and I will meet with you individually.
