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.

    At first I was like 'What?' I saw it on Netflix and was like 'OOOH, that's what she meant!' Checking it out, now.


    Update:
    Binge watched it. I have to admit it is hard for me to get into some shows, but this kept me intrigued. Thank you.

          I've been loosely tracking this since it was announced because I'm a James Purefoy fan. It looked mediocre-ok by the trailers, and 4 episodes in it's lived up to that expectation. I'm not mindblown by it so far but its something fun to pass the time.

              Books are 99% of the time better than the video versions. I do like the visuals of it.

                So I finished this a few days ago. The show definitely picked up in the second half. It's not sitting up there with shows like The Last Kingdom, Game of Thrones or Marco Polo for me, but it was a worthwhile watch. I liked Takeshi's japanese actor more though, I kinda hope he gets a clone of his original sleeve for season 2.
