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.

  • Thank you, Flea!

    I'd like to give a shout-out to StoryTrainee (now StoryPlotter...congratulations!) Flea for getting Harvest out of the "trap" that exists on the road to and from the Reservoir. To simulate travel time, the "rooms" that comprise the road are on a timer, and only let you pass on into the next room after X number of minutes. The room that Harvest was in was badly broken, and she couldn't progress in either direction. Worse, the room was sticky, and she could only log back on into that room.

    It looked like she was going to be in for the duration, but Flea showed up and got her back to her dorm room.

    All hail the mighty Flea!

    You're playing? Guess I need to bring out the neighborhood voodoo priestess.
