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.

  • Uthgol Times: Monsterly News

    I've been thinking of starting something I hope will stir up some interest in GR. I would like to start a Uthgol-wide periodical publication, such as a newspaper, on the GR forums.

    In it would be sections for Letters to the Editor, Interesting news, Individual Lair Columns, announcements, Rumors section, challenge section... Monster stuff... (more ideas?)

    I hope it would catch on, hopefully become a STICKY or a new section on the GR forums. Players could 'submit' news etc by posting in the appropriate section or thread.

    Do you have any suggestions regarding this? Input is awesome. Perhaps a name for the publication? I was thinking Uthgol Times (or something similar). Suggestions for sections?

    Thanks! I look eagerly forward to input!

      I think that's a great idea. I really like the name as well.
      Japes point towards Studgrob. A single point of light flashes from the middle of Studgrob's body, then starts growing larger until a great dome of bluish-white energy consumes him and his surroundings! 999999 points of damage! Studgrob roars a final time before dying

      Japes says, "Ninja minotaurs in love."
      Japes flails.


      Synchar: Toastah!
      Toasty: o.o
      Toasty: OMG, IT'S A SYNCHAR.
      <Toasty thwacks you with a rolled up newspaper.>

      sgp NO LAG! *can't breath* *starts to turn blue*
      StoryGuide Damocles responds, "Just calm down. Maybe it's the start of great things."

        Would like something like this, too!
        -Usuichii, Great Scientist.

        Smarmy the Titan bellows to you, "You look almost like an Ugly."

        Blackhand the Orc grumbles: I don't know what to call you. No ugly is that vile, and no proper creature of Uthgol has ever had such a lack of honor!

          Bumping this in the hopes that I might get some suggestions. Player base is low now, so what to report??

          Also, I was browsing thru old threads and came across the following I posted in an attempt to lighten the mood of a contentious discussion:

          [Edited out]... I'll say a few things, these from EXPERIENCE, not conjecture:

          1. T7's are NOT all-powerful and unbeatable.

          2. My T7 only steps all over others because she's so big and they get in the way. Is it MY fault she can't see that itty-bitty scarab, or even feel it's shell crack and it's guts squish to juice under her feet? No.

          3. My T7 is actually nice to the lower, puny, and weakling monsters she TOWERS over with obvious all-encompassing authority, infamy, and control over their very lives.

          4. My T7, being humanoid, requires alot of protein to keep her muscles in peak shape. She eats ALOT, thus all the belching. She tends to really like chicken, which most chimera of any class taste like, although she also loves a good Mino-steak, raw, every now and then. Pie is good too.

          5. T7's are great to have on your side, since they can threaten anyone who bothers you. Not to mention squash, slice and dice, or eat them.

          6. Without the terror of the T7's, Uthgol would be overrun with thugs trying to beat down everybody else. With the small amount of T7's allowed in Uthgol, thuggery has been kept at a managable rate.

          .... just a few of my thoughts.
