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.

  • TEC is unfortunately, not a casual game.

    And I can't seem to devote the time to play it, as I just don't have that luxury to give. I am sorry for the ongoing story-archs that this wrecks that I had going on, but if I can't put a game on pause for an hour to retrieve my child due to another player's insistence that I'm too OOC to play, I'm just going to have to hang it up. I have deleted my account to prevent myself from being tempted to return so this is a pretty effective end to Kayash and my other characters. I wish you all the best in all that you do.

          This is not pleasant to read on any level - Especially since I arrived at the information three days later than I would have wished. I echo Philippe....You always had room for your life with me as well. Hope you'll check your private messages at some point and stop in every so often to let us know how you are.

          Thinking of you.

            Real life comes first. Sorry to see you go. I am sure if you wanted to attempt a go of it a little GM assistance could be found.
            blank kills you with blank's bare hands.
            You are slain.

              Meh its as casual as you want it to be i did fine when i was in the navy i went out for months at a time before comming back into game ill tell you sometimes them little vacations are awesome especially incharacter you return to iridine and you gotta run around incharacter get caught up on the gossip and news. I came back once right at the butt end of that ravenite invasion or moonfall even back in the late 90s early 2000s. good character shock. logging into that mess.
