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.

  • Laboratory Personnel and Maintenance Issue

    [This message is displayed on the Laboratory Rune Network in every room, and on a plain scroll in the Shrine.]

    I am finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with my studies and personal advancement with so few assistants remaining awake in the Laboratory.
    I am not being paid my personal upkeep stipend, and many lab specimen are spoiling, drying out or dying, especially group 11a-Mammal-Feline and 10a-Unknown.

    Unless I find that some Laboratory staff returns to direct my work and pay my stipend, I will drop ties with the Laboratory and offer my assistance to another group.
