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.

    9:00pm - A Final Farewell

    Personal affairs have been tended. Goodbyes have been said. The time has come to board the ship and sail to life's next great adventure. Those who have submitted their names publicly should report to the riverwalk near the Stone Toga Inn. Those who submitted their names privately should be nearby at the same time, and wait to be approached by a slave for boarding.

    See the velum hanging in the Records Office for more details.

    [Boarding will take place sometime between 9PM EST and midnight. If you are unable to be there, you will be transported the island afterward. The event will run no later than March 24th.]
