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.

  • Recording Plot Idea

    Ok, so the first time this didn't go through for some reason, so I'm editing with my original text, to the best of my memory.

    I was thinking we could use the wax cylinders for some kind of odd scavenger hunt type plot. Recordings of odd things happening around town that are found in strange places and then you take it back to the library to listen to it, and it's something really weird.

    Or perhaps recordings of seances? Any mediums out there? Even ouiji board games gone wrong and tarot card readings that are horrible...

    I've thought perhaps recordings of psychoanalysis would be cool too.

    What sort of plot ideas do you guys have in relation to the wax cylinders? Any chance of a second one being placed in the mental hospital for psychologists to do psychoanalysis that can be reviewed later?

    Any ideas, suggestions, concerns? Let's all think about this!

    The "white noise" concept: leaving a recording going in some out of the way place and then playing it back and getting half-hidden voices and such. That's a possibility. Coders could create some crude sort of timing device so the recorder would switch on automatically after a delay of X minutes.

    Check out my "De Profundis" comments in the log of the 22 November CDM: psychodrama, anybody? There's a lot of horror you can create for yourselves.
