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.

    We are looking for players to help write up descriptions for animals. Since real world animals (rabbits, dogs, etc.) are the "people" in ICO, the animals are various types of reptiles (skinks, drays, etc.).

    We don't want players to have to memorize a bunch of different animal names, so we're going to use categories of animals instead. The first category that we will be working on is "growlers," which are dog-like lizards. They will have various purposes, such as for hunting.

    The very minimum we need from you is the look and examine for the animal (you can skip the brief). If you want to write descriptions for individual body parts (head, legs, claws, tail, skin, etc.), that's even better!

    Example:
    Brief: a skink
    Look: A small lizard with a very sleek body that bears five lines.
    Examine: A small lizard with a very sleek body that bears five lines. It usually consumes insects but will at times devour other lizards.

    I will give 5 to 10 storypoints per submission at my discretion based on how detailed the description is (more details = more storypoints) and how much extra work staff has to do to make it usable (less work = more storypoints).

    Please send all submissions to guinness@ironclaw.skotos.net.

    If you have any questions, please respond in this thread. Someone else might be wondering the same thing!

    Would it be helpful to use any particular format, like karmode?

    If so, what is the syntax?

      This right here is actually the perfect syntax and we could just copy and paste right from that!

      Thanks for double checking!
