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.

    If you click on the audio titles, you hear all sorts of homemade songs and such from the 30's. Bless the Library of Congress.

    Staffly Note:
    While I am currently unaware of a way to tie sound links to objects in game, you are certainly welcome to reference appropriate outside sources of the time period (the 1930's and earlier) in game. Of course, like Mr. Wardlaw above, most people like a bit of background music to set the mood while playing as well.

    If you've got favorite music or other bits you listen to while RPing, please share it with us here.
