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.

    Hi there,

    I know a lot of the newbies don't really know me, so this one's for the oldies who do.

    It was great being able to chat to you guys, albeit briefly, and while I would love to poke my nose in and stick my fingers in the honey, I'm a very busy person now. Hopefully I'll be able to pop in now and again, but alas, that's not up to me (it is, but shh).

    Mebbe some day I could give you guys some more time and effort, have Zee delve into the politics going on, perhaps even vie for Sheriff again! Who knows?

    Until then,
    *steals* Happy Trails!
