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.

    I've been listening to traditional Scottish and Celtic music while playing lately.

          I pretty exclusively listen to Viking music when I play Eeva. It's been Wardruna for a good bit, but I ran across this the other day:

          Yep. That's a youtube radio station that streams Viking music 24/7.

            My tastes are eclectic to say the least and range from indigenous flute,drum, and chant to hardcore metal. This is my choice at present.


            As Lions: Aftermath
            Shadows pouring like rain
            Beneath a decay
            Alone we wait for the end to come
            We look for the signs
            A glimmer of light
            A crack in the sky
            What have we created?
            What have we become?
            Meaningless and jaded,
            The forsaken ones
            Following the footsteps
            Deep into the black
            We echo in the darkness
            Knowing there's no turning back
            Tell me, how long do we wait
            Until we see the other side?
            The end of everything
            Nothing left but you and I
            Waiting for the storm to pass
            Caught up in the aftermath
            With you by my side,
            We walk in to the fire
            We walk in to the fire
            We reap what we sow
            The end of the rope
            Tightens its hold around our throats
            We're closer to death
            We're counting each breath
            Like it was our last
            What have we created?
            What have we become?
            Meaningless and jaded
            The forsakenů

            What have we created?
            What have we become?
            Meaningless and jaded
            The forsaken ones
            Following the footsteps
            Deep into the black
            We echo in the darkness
            Knowing there's no turning back
            Tell me, how long do we wait
            Until we see the other side?
            The end of everything
            Nothing left but you and I
            Waiting for the storm to pass
            Caught up in the aftermath
            With you by my side
            We walk in to the fire
            We're burning all the same across this divide
            So will we see the rain? Or let the flames decide?
            What have we created?
            What have we become?
            Meaningless and jaded?
            Are we too far gone?
            Tell me, how long do we wait
            Until we see the other side?
            The end of everything
            Nothing left but you and I
            Waiting for the storm to pass
            Caught up in the aftermath
            With you by my side
            We walk in to the fire
            We walk in to the fire
            We walk in to the fire

              I find this sets the mood for roleplaying Galatea, especially when in the Inner Bailey.

                Mood music for playing Seraphus:

                Definitely a fan of subtle background music which keeps me in the fantasy-genre, but I've been quite known to dash into contemporary tunes with vocals to match a particular scene I may be engaged in.
