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.

  • Away For a While

    I have some family issues to take care of and will be traveling away from home for some weeks. I'm not sure how long I will be gone. So, Smarmy and my other characters will not be online for this time. I plan to leave on the 19th or 20th of July, so you may see me online for a few days yet, but I am busy, so no guarantees.

    I just tonight got back from all that family business (MONTHS, when I originally hoped it would only be weeks. Odd to be in my own place again). Hopefully, I am back for good now. I will be paying for my account again within the next few days, so will have Smarmy and some of my other characters online. If there are enough players online to make it worthwhile, I will also renew my second account, on which I have more characters. I hope to see ya'll online!

      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!
