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.

  • LETS HIT 100! (Auction; Tues, june 5th, 9-11PM EST)

    Hey all, I'm sure everyone's seen Siddhe's post in the Announcements thread, detailing that should we get 100 people online at one time, we get a nice lil' reward. It doesn't seem likely that this is going to happen organically, so why not plan for it?

    There's an auction tomorrow (Tuesday the 5th). Auctions already draw big player numbers, so it seems like one of the best opportunities we have to make this happen. All you have to do is log in between the hours of 9-11PM EST (Basically the run time of the auction) and sit around a bit until we break that peak. Catch up with some old friends in the WA, head on over to the auction house and get some goodies, or just AFK in an inn room, doesn't matter! You'll be doing plenty just by being here.

    If this doesn't work out, we should keep this dialog open to plan for another attempt in the future. There's no reason we can't hit this if we organize folks.

    You mean it's true?

              Solid try folks. Alas, we did not hit the 100 goal. We hit a peak of 76 though, and on one day notice, I think that's pretty damn good! Imagine what we could do on a week?
