Downtime Report: Wednesday Night

We had an abrupt and unannounced downtime for all games and services starting sometime after 9pm PT on Wednesday evening. This was due to a massive power outage at our cloud computing facility of the sort that redundant systems are supposed to ensure never happen. After about an hour they were able to diagnose that the power was out. It took a few more hours for them to start restoring service.

At this moment, everything is back up except for Ironclaw and TEC. At the rate they're restoring things, I hope those will be back up in the next 15-30 minutes, but it's entirely in their hands.

As is typically the case with a sudden reboot, TEC and GR have to be rolled back. This is already done with GR. The TEC rollback should be just a few hours due to the more recent backups recently instituted, but I need to get the machine back before I can verify that.

Update: Ironclaw and TEC are now back too. The TEC rollback was 2.5 hours, from 9.30pm PT (when everything crashed) to 7.00 pm PT.

    So what do you guys think regarding non aggression agreements you make with someone...but then they appear to stop playing and are being eaten from the other side by an opposing player...which would just make that other player so large they would definitely then come devour your planets.

    At what if any point is it ok to consider the agreement null and void because they apparently quit and you feel you need to take aggressive action for self preservation?

    Would for example...waiting 24 hours after a message of "are you there?" be sufficient for honor's sake? 48 hours?

    I'd say 36 hours.
