Co-Lo Stability Problems

Unfortunately, our co-lo had some stability problems Friday morning.

First up, they lost all of their connectivity to the facility that holds all of our games. This took them about 40 minutes to diagnose and a bit longer to restore.

Much more astonishingly, they rebooted all of their machines (which means all of our machines) while they were fixing the problem, with no notice. This probably had minimal repercussions on the SkotOS games (Marrach, Ironclaw, Lazarus, and Lovecraft). There may have been a rollback of an hour or two.

TEC and Grendel's Revenge are more troublesome. TEC will suffer a rollback of 10 hours, to midnight (PT) last night, since the unannounced reboot happened one hour before the next backups. GR suffered a more complete failure. We're being forced to restore the entire machine from its backups, then we'll need to restore the game from the backups stored within that backup. The lineup of dates look promising (which is how we laid them out, 'lo these many years ago), so the hope is that we'll only suffer a 7 hour rollback, to the 3am (PT) game backup, but it's a bit dicey at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience; we're now making sure everything is stable, and we're looking into whether our most recent upgrades to TEC will support increasing the backups to every 6 hours.

Edit: The GR problem is proving even more intractable than hoped. As best I can tell, our colo is still having some issues because I can't boot the first restore I made of GR and I can't build a new node either. I expect this will just clear when they get their act together, but in the meantime I'm not able to get GR back online until they fix these problems.

            Combat:
            One-handed swords: Probably still Rizer. Shout out to swords users who still embrace multiple styles - Daydro, Xia, Kered.
            Nelsor: Chrollo.
            Avros:
            Pardelian: There's few who have the pure spot-on instinct and know how as Kabar, in Pardelian, swords, and combat in general.
            Spears: Nerwintok. Brudox will always have a special place of awe in my mind.
            Staves: Everyone, apparently. Syden, Eifion.
            Archery: Parigrum.
            Knives: Ciaran.
            CKF: Ciaran.
            Clubs: Brogenex. I sort of love when he sends someone sprawling, follows up with some bone breakers, while he laughs and chats. Such a visual.
            Axes:
            Two-handed axes:
            Tridents: Danasei, Eifion.
            Whips: Syden. Irisa is pretty badass with it.
            Cestus: Kierstaad.
            Brawling: Nerwintok, Eifion.
            Pankration: Nerwintok, Eifion, Danasei, Shizdain.
            Combat maneuvers: Ciaran
            Shields: Ciaran.

            Non-Combat:
            Hunting: Evagrius. Morrian. Synodia can probably feed all of Franlius with all the fish she pulls up.
            Outdoor basics: Vladmir. He's always embodied the "man who sometimes wanders out of the woods" thing to me.
            Locksmithing: Ulath, Zearia.
            Healing: Neithan. Arteus is quite skilled and will trek to the ends of the map for you.
            Tailoring: I have absolutely no idea.
            [Pickpocketing, Street Smarts and Setups intentionally omitted]

            Misc.
            Most mysterious: Rethanor. Even I have no idea what he's saying, or what he's talking about.
            Most flirtatious: Favianna. Part of her Festiv-ness!
            Most admired: Skye. Great combination of engaging social presence, sweet talking and trustworthy entrepreneur, long term character evolution.
            Most intimidating: Shizdain. Intelligent, charming and unpredictable.
            Most funny: Kjel. Sukar, on his less ornery days. I hate to encourage her, but - Katya is pretty funny. Corvous, lately. When the mood strikes him, Ciaran can be pretty funny.
            Most likely to be found unconscious: Within the city: Thesil. Outside the city: Olio.
            Most dramatic: Parlin.
            Most consistently RPed: Neithan. Morphius. Rethanor. Danasei.
            Most fashionable: Skye. I am pretty sure she has a block of domus properties as her "closet." Is there a "fashionable couple" category too? I like seeing Ediynth and Eifion walk around in matching plates, medallions, gear, polearms out.
            Most likely to be the best (new character upstart) - combatant: Not really new - Kateleena doesn't seem like a mechanics-hound but seems like she thinks past the up-enter-attack-spam in combat situations.
            Most likely to be the best (new character upstart) - non-combatant: Another kudos to Peta. Kudos to Jaige for trying out different directions. Adalyn's been a pleasure to hear in thoughts.
            Best legionary: I am actually pretty damn pleased with all of the current active legionaries.
            Best constable: Impressed with how Nerwintok's filing those Captain's boots. I like the current atmosphere of constables being polite but firm - but sometimes I do miss Rubico's way of just shutting someone down. 8)
            Best gladiator: Syden. Undefeated! (So far.)
            Best character quirk: Vierra's combination of fierceness and humor. Sirai's dedication to being unable to hear.
            Oddest character quirk: Kella's network of adoptions reminds me of an octopus.
            Hottest woman: Mystikqua. She's mine.
            Hottest man: Best "handsome male" description of all time goes to Dahkneth.
            Deadliest older couple: Eifion and Ediynth. Skye and Victavian - I like what they can do with less. Ciaran and whatever weapon he picks for the year.
            Deadliest newer couple: I'd love to see Kabar + Irisa throw down.
            Cutest newer couple: The Hizerimus + Ophelea votes are good. Er... Natara + Lannit. I like that Lannit has found love. Armagillus + Zearia.
            Cutest older couple: Nerwintok + Xia. Back in the day, I loved how in love M'kerron was with Melilia.
            Most unlikely newer couple:
            Most unlikely older couple: Nicasia + Lyke
            Best name:
            Favorite recently returned character: Methodios. Hizerimus. Latonic - back and gone again so soon.

            Most improved: Syden. Also enjoying Felisin's current new leaf as a constable.
