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.

  • How tall!

    Curious, don't ask me why - but how tall would you say your character is? I mean sure we have towering people - but everyones view of towering could be different. I mean, towering to a short person could be normal to a tall person - though then you have people who are towering to tall people. *babbles momentarily*

    So anyway, about how tall feet and inches would you say your character(s) are?

    Adayne - 5'11 - 6 Lord I gotta edit, I imagined Ada being taller than Dav :P *snicker*
    Sinvy - 5'7
    Dawn - 5'5-5'6
    Triffle - 4'2

    Yes, I'm nosy.

      Uh. I just go by what the parser tells me...

      Stix is average height.

      Barinboff is short.

              Well, I don't think of Glyphe as any height in inches, but thinking about it, I'd say five nine. Riony always seems short to me, so probably five five.

                  Ryot is about 6'5 or 6'6.

                  He's basically two inches taller than me, has more manageable hair, and is slightly less evil.

                      I see john as 7'3". 7'6" with his tall boots on. Or as avaria has put it a few times, freakishly huge.

                        Namida.. A bit taller than I am r/l - about 170 cm (would that be like 5'8?)

                          I guess Elsie's about 5'2"?

                          Pretty damn short!

                              I have -always- had this vague impression that Johnathan is about the tallest thing to hit the hallways since the Recent Awakenings started.
