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.

    I wanted to mention that the Spring session ends on May 15th. So keep in mind we are approaching the time for your characters to head over to the registrar office and pick up a form to sign up for new classes.

    The Fall session started the 5th. It should be possible to register for classes still. Do file an assist if you have any problems. I know there are some outstanding ideas or issues connected to the registrar's assistant. It may be time for her to retire and someone new to take on that job.

    Freshmen, don't forget to try the scavenger hunt. Fun prizes.
